Statute Compilations in USLM XML Format

This project is the latest effort in the overall legislative branch strategy to move more legislative publications into USLM XML

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) and its legislative data partners in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have made Statute Compilations available in USLM XML format. This new format makes documents easier to use, read, and download.

Access Statute Compilations in USLM XML format via Search, Browse, Bulk Data, and the govinfo API.

Statute Compilations are compilations of public laws that either do not appear in the U.S. Code or that have been classified to a title of the U.S. Code that has not been enacted into positive law. Each Statute Compilation incorporates the amendments made to the underlying statute since it was originally enacted. This collection encompasses select non-positive law statutes. Over 2,100 Statute Compilations are now currently available on govinfo.

GPO has partnered with various Congressional offices on this project, including the Office of the Legislative Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Office of the Legislative Counsel of the U.S. Senate, the Clerk of the House, and the Secretary of the Senate.
