Abstract

This article aims to present the Interlegis program developed by the Brazil National Congress, in association with Interamerican Development Bank (IDB), which is about modernization and Integration of the Legislative command, in its federal, state and municipal levels and about promotion of the transparency and interaction of this command with society. The ways used are the new information technologies (internet, videoconferences and data transmission), that allow communication and exchange of experiences between the legislative houses and legislators and between the legislative and the public, seeking to raise the participation of the people on the legislative process.
