Last August, I released an XML copy of the Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL). As an example of what could be done with the structured data, I also created a single-page HTML version generated from the XML. Since then, there’s been significant activity in the state statutory arena; my favorite example is Virginia Decoded, a pretty version of Virginia’s Code, which is (somehow?) affiliated with the State Decoded.
In preparation for some upcoming projects, I’ve since updated both the XML and HTML versions. You can consume these documents in the following ways:
- In one giant HTML file over the web.
- In one giant HTML file on your desktop via ZIP or BZ2.
- In one giant XML file on your desktop via ZIP or BZ2.
