Florida State House of Representatives
The FLHouse app is a first and only application from the Florida House of Representatives. With over 80 features (including bill tracking and live streaming from the House floor) it is a robust tool for anyone looking to keep up with what’s going on with the legislative body, as well as immediately know what impactful legislation is being decided upon. Thousands of documents are now easily available, and through a myriad of APIs, bills and materials previously difficult to obtain and discern from, are now immediately available. Development of this complex app was achieved in a compressed timeframe of a few months in order to launch by session start.
A Case Study in Government Transparency
Tailored for constituents, media, legislators and Tallahassee insiders, this app has become an example of government communication and transparency. It has garnered over 60 media mentions and accolades. A version 2.0 will include enhancements such as better bill tracking, easier navigation, find-your-rep capabilities, and additional features.
