What does it mean for a legislative house to be digital-ready?

 

Parliament modernisation efforts are essential for a more effective institution that delivers better laws, better oversight of the executive branch, and better representation. The legislative digital transformation should be respectful with the legislative institution tradition and internal balance of power, preserving its core values but improving daily processes for the betterment of Members, Public servants, and our societies.

 

In this high-level binational debate between the Brazilian Senate and the US Congress, we will debate a path for a more digital-ready legislative branch.

 

Bússola Tech has the honor to moderate the debate and to welcome the former Vice President of the Brazilian Senate House, The Right Honorable Senator Antônio Anastasia, and the Chairman of the House Committee on Rules in the US House of Representatives, The Right Honorable Congressman James McGovern.

 

This is the opening debate of a series focused on LegisTech entrepreneurs and Startups, those actors who are highly specialised in the Legislative Branch and who can support the digital transformation in the Legislative. To interview the parliamentarians, we welcome representatives from ABRIG, FiscalNote, Sindilegis, Visual Sistemas, and Xcential Legislative Technologies.
