Unicameral bodies no longer considered "upper"?


#1

I’m looking at the chambers in every state, and neither Nebraska nor DC has an upper or lower chamber. Nebraska is the only unicameral state legislature, has OpenStates decided to simply treat Nebraska’s “legislature” as its Unicameral body? (And analogously, DC’s city council is its “legislature”?)

For what its worth, the query I’m running is:

{
  jurisdictions {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        name
        legislature: organizations(classification: "legislature", first: 1) {
          edges {
            node {
              name
              classification
              upper:children(classification:"upper", first:1) {
                edges {
                  node {
                    name
                    classification
                  }
                }
              }
              lower:children(classification:"lower", first:1) {
                edges {
                  node {
                    name
                    classification
                  }
                }
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Yes, DC and NE don’t have a chamber, the legislature has people directly.

@james I stumbled on this difference too when I started with it several months ago, and didn’t say anything because it felt minor. I’m starting to wonder now if it might make sense to make DC and Nebraska have the same shape as other states, i.e., have a chamber. As you know, that’s how it is in v1. The current situation is both surprising (IMHO) and requires extra special-case code for handling DC and NE.
