The House of Representatives is doing something to increase transparency (for real):  they are publishing legislative documents in XML format and making them freely available.  There are some services, like Thomas, which do a great job of cataloging active legislation, but all of the pending stuff is difficult to find.  This move will help private citizens raise awareness of government activity and help keep our legislators honest.  There are more details at xml.house.gov.
