Question Answer Comment
Available in bulk No There is no API, so you don’t have access to the complete dataset. You have to build queries specifying the kind of legislation you are interested in.
In an open format HTML
Available free of charge Yes
Up-to-date Yes Rio de Janeiro City council is under recess in this month, so I can't check the update frequency during the current legislation period. Based on the last legislation period, the lastest bills proposed were published at the website in less than a week from the day of proposition.
Available free online Yes
Openly licenced Yes There is no license declaration in the website. Regarding the definition of copyright content stated by the Law 9.610/1998 in Article 7, XIII, a dataset will be copyrightable only if its organization involves an intellectual creation. In this case, data is primary or factual, so we can assume that it is open or public.
