  <dc:coverage xsi:type="dcterms:TGN">United States</dc:coverage>  <!-- In that the United States documents are located in .gov as opposed to the normal gov.xx convention, and also the states use .st.us . We should discuss this further-->

  • There were no major objections. Just a questions as to what the format for the states would be.


  <dc:coverage>United States House of Representatives</dc:coverage>

Don-says coverage tags together mean they contradictory, may be there should be an attribute. Joe,- should this be creator?


  <dc:identifier>108 H. R. 12 IH<dc:identifier>  <!-- GREAT--> 

Don-Bluebook or what format?

Ann-Bluebook is HR 12

 Should it be allowed if permanent.


  <dc:title>Jobs and Growth Tax Act of 2003</dc:title>

Joe-possibly more short titles

There is discussion about whether the “Title” is sometimes not the official long title, but is a commonly used title. Also there was a suggestion to add additional title tags to handle this or use the description.

Andy-bills pass on from session to session using asterisks


  <dc:creator xsi:type="dcterms:URI">http://bioguide.congress.gov/M000508</dc:creator>  Discussion again of whether non-permanent links allowed and realization that creator may indicate very different things for different bodies, for example it might be a person or a committee.

  <dc:subject> </dc:subject>  <!--Although there has been discussion about the difficulty as to acertaining if and what subjects the law or proposed legislation can be done, in that legal documents should probably not include metadata that is not either clearly stated within the text of the document or truly self evident. I would recommend using the term "legislation" or "law" or "statute" in the subject field. In this way, we will have included clearly within the meta-data, what the document is. or better yet... see below in added relation tag-->

Not sure. No conclusion reached.
