National Legislation Database (IL0027)
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
The National Legislation Database went live on the Knesset website for the first time in 2014 and it contains information about all of the laws of the State of Israel and laws as legislated, as well as the parliamentary processes for each of them. Since 2016, draft bills under consideration by the current Knesset are also presented, as well as information about draft bills and their accompanying parliamentary processes from the first Knesset until the current Knesset. The National Legislation Database is still not complete and the following data needs to be added –
a. Full explanation of the legislative process of a draft bill – at the moment, the database presents the information and data about government draft bills only from the stage at which the draft bill begins the legislative process in the Knesset. But a government draft bill begins its “life” well before this, when a memorandum of law is disseminated on the Government Law Memoranda Website – www.tazkirim.gov.il. At the moment, there are two separate and disconnected processes, even though at issue is a single draft bill, that initiates an internal process in the government and is presented to the public for comments, and only subsequently, it proceeds through a legislative proceeding in the Knesset. b. Presentation of secondary legislation that is enacted by virtue of laws of the State of Israel – the laws of the State of Israel authorize various officers in the executive authority to institute secondary legislation by virtue thereof. To date, there is no government database that contains all secondary legislation enacted by virtue of each of the laws of the State of Israel.
c. Development of tools that will allow the Knesset to fulfill the government’s supervisory role and monitor the government’s performance in enacting secondary legislation that is required pursuant to the provisions of law.
d. Presentation of budget laws – the budget laws are still not optimally presented in a database.
e. Presentation of the full version of the laws of the State of Israel – to date, the State of Israel has not taken action to present the amended and updated version of the laws of the State, which incorporates all amendments to them that have been legislated over the years. What is the
a. Building an interface that will enable the linking of a government draft bill submitted to the Knesset to the first version disseminated as a memorandum of law, and presentation of the information in the National Legislation Database with a page for each law.
b. Building an interface for receiving information about secondary legislation being enacted by virtue of laws of the State of Israel and presenting it in the National Legislation Database, and building a system that enables monitoring of the government’s performance in enacting secondary legislation required by law.
c. Completing the information needed about budget laws for the purpose of including it in the database.
d. Establishing a system to manage the full and updated version of the laws of the State of Israel – the Knesset took it upon itself to prepare and present the full version of the laws of the State of Israel. To this end, comprehensive, in-depth work was performed to collect information, documents and data and to characterize a designated system that will prepare the full version, in order to start developing it. How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The new interfaces and mode of presentation of the information in the National Legislation Database will enable all existing information to be made publicly accessible in a comprehensive way, and will help develop the National Legislation Database as a meaningful public resource. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Transparency: Development of the National Legislation Database helps the public exercise its right to information, in that it makes comprehensive, reliable, high-quality information publicly accessible, which, until now, had not been readily available or had been accessible only to commercial companies. Milestone Activity with a verifiable deliverable: Linking government draft bills that are contained in the National Legislation Database to the memoranda of law that are disseminated by the government, and presenting the information in individual law pages in the National Legislation Database.
