committees.py
-------------
Progress: finished
Data scraped:
  * chamber
  * membernames
  * roles


bills.py
--------
Progress: some

Data scraped:
  * chamber
  * session
  * bill_id
  * title
  * primary sponsor
  * actions
  * co-sponsors*
  * additional sponsors*
  * votes*

Implementation plan: Have to scrape multiple bill lists to get URLs for actual bills, then 
crawl those URLs to scrape bill details. Co-sponsors and additional sponsors do not appear to be 
formatted consistently, so not including them with bill until a solid scraping strategy can be 
determined.

Vote data for each bill is being partially scraped. Action type, vote type and motion are not currently 
being determined. The bill's name is being used in place of the motion name.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
