So, I was looking at a bill on, and I got curious and looked at the XML - they publish the bills as XML and XSLT them client-side into HTML - and I discovered that the enacting clause (Be it enacted etc.) is not even in the XML. It's so canned they literally have it hard-coded in the XSLT stylesheets. (I found this amusing.)
