Tracking legislation differs for different types of lobbyist. For example:
Following Legislation and Communicating Impact
As the lobbyist for your organization, you have the challenge of needing to follow legislation, convey the issues "up" to management and "down" to the functional parts of your organization. You want to gather input from all contacts, then formulate strategies, and at the same time communicate easily on both the strategies as well as the progress a bill is making.
The Capitol Impact legislative tracking system allows each client to build up portfolios of bills.
- Associations can organize bills by topic.
- Private lobbying firms can organize them by client and topic.
- State and local government agencies can organize them by department or topic.
Simple Set Up and Managing Your Legislation
For each bill you track you assign it a tracking level, code the bill for the subject areas, topics and/or departments, and explain the projected impact. As your audience reviews the legislation, they can use a secure feedback form to convey their views and the impact it will have at a local level.
Our tracking system can be linked into your current website so your audience can login to see what you are doing or the public may have open access to the legislation you are monitoring. And the complete tracking system can be integrated with our grassroots lobbying system.
