New: XML Copy of the Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL), by Michael Bommarito

Michael J. Bommarito II of Systematic Global Macro and Computational Legal Studies has posted an XML version of Michigan Compiled Laws — the official codification of Michigan legislation — for bulk download.

According to his post, Mr. Bommarito also “improved the underlying data [of the code] by adding tags and correcting indentation as best as possible.”

Mr. Bommarito says that this effort was prompted by Ari Hershowitz’s effort to organize a hackathon to create better digital versions of California legislation.

For bulk access to the XML version of Michigan Compiled Laws, a sample of the XML, or for more information about this project, please see Mr. Bommarito’s entire post.
