The Sunlight Foundation‘s Sunlight Labs made its Real Time Congress API available today. “The Real Time Congress API (RTC) is a RESTful API over the artifacts of Congress, kept up to date in as close to real time as possible,” the announcement says. Data is available in both JSON and XML.

StreamCongress is already using the new API to stream floor updates.

The the feeds currently available through the API are:

  • Floor Updates
  • Videos
  • Committee Hearings
  • Bills
  • Amendments
  • Votes
  • Documents

The Sunlight Labs Drumbone API is now deprecated.
