US House Bill Web Scraper

Part of a larger personal project to improve democratic engagement, this web scraper will parse and return key data for any bills introduced in the 114th Congress. In addition to printing the data, it will create a csv file of information as well as a text file of each bill's complete text. The csv file will be created in the same folder as the program. The text of the bills will be saved in a new folder \BillText\billnumber.txt.

More programs are coming soon!
