OVERVIEW | RESEARCH

NCSL conducts policy research in a variety of areas ranging from agriculture and budget and tax issues and education to health care and immigration and transportation. NCSL’s experts are here to answer your questions and give you unbiased, comprehensive information as soon as you need it on issues facing state legislatures. We answer more than 20,000 requests for information a year. Call us anytime or check out our issues list to see what we have online.

Our consulting services on policy issues go beyond testifying. We help draft bills, organize workshops, and convene legislative-executive teams.

Contact your state’s liaison to schedule a briefing or to learn more about this service.

We also offer access to 50-state information and other legislative resources, such as weekly session schedules. You can find legislation in the 50 states, District of Columbia and Congress through NCSL’s new 50-State Bill Information Service, a searchable database containing the full text of legislation for the current session.
