Learn how I developed this project

Step 1 - Planning Phase
What problem was I trying to solve
    Paid Family leave has become an important issue that affects many US households. Today, the decision to implement this benefit is done by a state by state. So as result, it can be very confusing for citizens to track the status of Paid Family leave legislative bills in their state.
    It's a complete code re-write which now has improved scalability, reliability and speed.
