Comentário dos Revisores: Através site da câmara podemos acessar diretamente a Lei Federal 12.527, de 2011, Lei de Acesso a Informação que regulamenta a disponibilidade de dados governamentais do Poder Executivo, Legislativo e Judiciário. Percebemos isto como uma intenção de amparar os dados disponibilizados pelo portal na LAI, sendo portanto informações públicas.

collector_name Câmara Municipal de Uberlândia. The data is inserted by the own government and the name of the person responsible for the registry is available.
characteristics Content of the law / status, Amendments to the law (if applicable) There are two different sections. One is regarding legislation to be approved and the other is related to the legislation already approved. In the first case, you have information such as creation date, last processing date, follow-up date and resume. However, such information is not available in the approved law section. Both sections enable the public to search by the content of the law. However, the Monitoring of the legislative process section (not yet approved) is the only one that enables you to search by the status. You can also find other related information such as the situation of the project, the date of the creation of the law as well as the starting date of validity, the number of the project, even the person who has registered. However, it does not mean that all these information are available. On the other hand, the Legislative official website allows the public to search the approved laws by: type, number, dates (initial/final), author and content, at the Portal do Cidadão. You do not need to fill in all the spaces. Amendment to the Organic Law can be searched at the Monitoring of the legislative process section. Further, the amendments are already included in the law texts once downloaded. Comentário dos Revisores: Ao checar algumas leis, não foi possível identificar na lei alterada o registro de alterações. Apenas informava qual lei estaria sendo alterada.

In the first case, you have information such as creation date, last processing date, follow-up date and resume. However, such information is not available in the approved law section. Moreover, you cannot search by law project at the law consultation section; you have to search at the Legislative Process section, but you can find the associated law with the law project attached. Then, you can download the project law as well as other related annex, such as the official correspondence from the Mayor requesting the law approval jointly with its justification.
