David Awad is putting together a database of the current code of every single state and the federal government so that we can track the changes in every law all the time. He has a way to now download the state codes from almost all of the states over multiple years. https://github.com/davidawad/statedb

He's also writing a special scraper to go through a few websites to create a JSON structured database of the state laws of multiple states.

Needs:

The hope here is that pretty soon people will be able to access a real database with all of the state laws and be able to do meaningful comparisons and data analysis. A programmer friendly dataset of all the state laws has never really existed before.
