This is a “tag cloud,” a sort of a graph of the topics addressed by these bills. Each word represents a different topic. The bigger the word is, the more bills that have been filed on that topic. A tiny word might represent just have a couple of bills, while a huge one (like “commendations”) might represent dozens of bills.
All of these tags have been created by visitors to Richmond Sunlight—people just like you.
