Monitoring legislative production

Since its first edition, the project ‘Patterns of Executive-Legislative Relations’ organizes and updates the ‘Cebrap Legislative database’. The database contains key information about Brazilian legislation dating back to the 1988 Constitution, including, among other information, the identification of origin/author and subsequent proceedings of all bills transformed into law, for all types of authors, and bills introduced exclusively by the Executive, in this case including all types of outcomes. The information gathered in this database is essential for any analysis of Executive-Legislative relations. Besides updating the database, this project is now expanding the universe of collection. The ultimate goal is to gather data on all introduced bills.
