Highlights from the whitepaper:

  • Proposed legislation seldom gets front-page treatment, but it can have a significant impact on businesses and organizations.
  • State legislatures contribute substantially to more than 170,000 measures considered across the country each year. Roughly 30,000 of those will become law.
  • Determining which measures will affect your bottom line can be a challenge.
  • When you track and gain insight on legislative activity, you are better able to take action affecting the legislative process, as well as prepare for impending costs and other changes.
  • Monitoring the large volume of legislation isn’t easy. Full-text searching on government websites may yield a significant number of irrelevant hits. Variations in terminology and codes related to legislation can complicate the process.
  • On the  plus side, new  legislation also can result in business opportunities.
