We are the nation's most respected bipartisan organization providing states support, ideas, connections and a strong voice on Capitol Hill.



As a legislator or legislative staffer, you are a member of NCSL. In this video, Republican and Democratic state lawmakers invite their fellow legislators to become involved with the National Conference of State Legislatures.





People at a meeting We  connect you to the best and brightest experts in every issue area critical to the states.

Through NCSL meetings, webinars and professional training opportunities, you’ll connect with legislators and staff with your same interests and concerns. Visit our Meetings and Training page and find out what’s coming up next.




US Capitol We advocate for you in Washington, D.C., before Congress, the administration and, when appropriate, in the courts.

We fight to ensure the states are free of unfunded mandates and pre-emption of state laws and that they maintain their authority and independence. Find out the issues NCSL is engaging in now and the role you play.





You'll be inspired, fired-up by inventive ideas, bold solutions and new connections at NCSL's 2015 Legislative Summit Aug. 3-6 in Seattle. Take a deep dive into critical issues and come up with a roadmap to results. New, interactive sessions are crafted to be engaging, relevant and memorable. They'll give you the tools you need to put your ideas into action.

This video from Visit Seattle will give you a preview of our host city.


  • Congress Addresses Human Trafficking

    The U.S. Senate passed the "Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act" (S. 178) on Wednesday. This is a comprehensive anti-trafficking bill that addresses all aspects of human trafficking, including law enforcement training, to better identify and apprehend traffickers.

  • States Win Only SCOTUS Pre-Emption Case of the Term

    Oneok v. Learjet is interesting not so much because of its subject matter—price manipulation of natural gas prices that happened well over a decade ago—but because it is the only pre-emption case of the U.S. Supreme Court’s current term.
