the Madison Project
An open source software platform for writing, publishing, and annotating legislation.
Madison is a government policy co-creation platform that opens up laws and legislation previously off-limits to individuals and the Internet community. Launched to battle the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), it has since been used to power citizen participation in official government documents in the United States Congress. With Madison, you can easily access the law as it’s being written, leave comments, annotate specific content, and interact with other civic-minded participants. Madison brings the law-making process straight to you, and gives you a say in your government’s decisions. Engage with the community. Madison allows you to interact not only with specific pieces of legislation, but with other civic-minded citizens. See what other people are saying and share your thoughts. Explore documents from other sponsors or legislative bodies.
