Welcome to NCSL’s redesigned website.

As you explore the site you will find a new look, new colors, bigger and bolder photographs. Our new site is brighter, clearer and cleaner than ever before.

Bill Pound blogYou will find the major features of the site are more intuitive to use and easier to find. Behind the “skin” of the new site is an enhanced, more robust search function designed to provide the precise information you’re seeking. 

On the front page of the site you will find a video greeting from me in which I point out some of the improved features of the site

What you won’t find is a change in the information we present. NCSL continues to be the nation’s most trusted bipartisan source of expert public policy research, distinguished by both its depth and relevance and geared to aid legislators and staff, whether their interest is formulating positions or gaining background on key issues affecting their states.

Our goal continues to be to bring you the most relevant information—topics, issues and analysis—in the most convenient and digestible form.

In addition to our members, we continue to welcome the media, academic researchers and concerned citizens who seek detailed insight into the processes and accomplishments of the nation’s state legislatures.

The debut of the new website coincides with the launch of The NCSL Blog. Following in the footsteps and expanding upon the scope of NCSL’s popular The Thicket, the new blog will be your real-time window to NCSL reports, news, events, developments on Capitol Hill and much more.

We hope you’ll take the new site for a test drive and share your impressions with us

And remember, NCSL is your organization. Turn to us often, bookmark our website and remember that we are here to serve you.

William Pound is executive director of NCSL.
