There are thousands of local governments in the United States. Every local jurisdiction operates differently, and publicizes its legislative actions and purchasing decisions in many varied ways - if at all. This presents huge challenges to government relations, community relations, and sales and marketing professionals interested in keeping up with particular issues, trends and procurements. MultiState offers a service to allow clients to stay abreast of issues at the local level.
MultiState's Local Alert Service, covering population centers from 10,000,000 down to 30,000, is nationwide and comprehensive. We also target our service regionally for clients drilling down to locales well below the 30,000 population level.
Our Local Alerts Team researches city and county information, identifying websites, contacts, and other legislative news resources, and developing relationships to create a dynamic internal database containing information on council and committee agendas, hearings, minutes, meetings and schedules for proposed ordinances, procurements, or other local actions. Every jurisdiction in our database is monitored through MultiState's own system of agenda and schedule checks for new and follow-up actions of interest.
Our government relations and local lobbying professionals continuously scour these information sources for new legislative developments and new actions throughout the U.S., pinpointing specific items that are important to you and alerting you immediately via email. These "local alerts" form the core of our Local Alert Service. Our goal is to provide advance notice on a new action item or procurement as soon as it is uncovered by our Local Team.
When our Local Alert Service identifies key issues of great importance to you, MultiState can also provide on-going legislative reporting, legislative tracking, and lobbying in those locales as necessary.
This legislative alert and political alert service will assure that you have a good handle on the local issues affecting your organization. No more surprises. No more finding out about some critical legislative action or precedent-setting decision after the fact.
