Helping w/ Iowa (failing since at least 2019-02-07)


I see the IA scraper has been having trouble of late. I was wondering if any efforts were underway by anyone to address this and whether or not I could be of any assistance. Thanks!

P.S. Would here be the best place for this kind of post or the comments on the issue itself within Github?


I took a look at it. There have been a succession of problems. The latest one just started in last night’s run:

Max retries exceeded with url: /legislation/billTracking/billHistory?billName=HSB%20153&ga=88 (Caused by NewConnectionError(': Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -3] Try again',))

I wasn’t able to reproduce it, and hope it is a transient Iowa-side server issue.

I’ll be posting any further progress on the GitHub issue:
