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.
