How to Track State Legislation: A guide to understanding the process (2015)

By CQ Roll Call

This guide explains generally how a bill makes its way through the legislative process and how to track a bill though this process. It also provides links to every state legislature website and their session dates for 2016. Please note: this resource was created by CQ Roll Call, a for-profit entity, and is an advertisement for their StateTrack legislation tracking system. Even so, we think it is a helpful and concise resource if you are looking to start working on state policy.
