  • Project Vote-Smart surveys state legislative records and summarizes bill sponsorships and votes.
  • OnTheIssues does the same thing from federal legislative records, by reading the Congressional Record (available through the Library of Congress online.)
  • OnTheIssues sometimes reads state legislative records (for the few states that post their House and Senate journals online) and sometimes relies on VoteSmart (who use the more readily-available printed version).
  • In both cases, the summaries are intended to be non-biased politically: a description of the bill, rather than an analysis of its effect.
  • OnTheIssues also adds Pro and Con opinions on federal legislation, from proponents and opponents of each bill in the legislature or in private organizations.
  • Generally, Pro and Con opinions are not available for most state legislation, so VoteSmart sticks to just summaries.
