We make it easy to track legislation in Congress & all 50 states.
The FastDemocracy ® legislative bill tracking software empowers political newcomers and professionals to be more informed and effective advocates for policy change, by keeping them up to date on state and Congress legislation.
Tracking bills is hard, especially if you rely on state legislature websites! Each year, thousands of bills get filed in every state legislature in the country (that's about 180,000 bills nationwide). Legislation gets introduced by bill sponsors, heard in committees, amended, passed and becomes law. That's thousands of bill texts, hearings, votes and amendments to keep track of. If you want to be an effective advocate, you need to know what action to take and when to take it. We can help you stay up to date on bills you care about, so you can take timely action.
FastDemocracy makes it easy to track legislation in Congress and all 50 states, so you don't miss legislative bill actions that are important to you. We combine this with a government advocacy and lobbying suite to develop and organize advocacy strategies, collaborate, and keep stakeholders informed. Instead of going to government websites and combing through hundreds of pages of legislation, we detect legislative patterns and help you focus on what you do best - advocate for policy change. FastDemocracy is built from the state-level up, so we have the most accurate and timely information across states and the federal government.
