Why FastDemocracy Professional?
Tracking bills is hard, especially if you rely on state and city legislative websites, spreadsheets or outdated bill trackers. Thousands of bills get filed in each state legislature across the US each year (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 where legislation of interest stands, and act quickly. 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.
Is FastDemocracy Professional right for you?
If you or your organization follows state legislation in a professional capacity, the answer is probably yes. We work with non-profits, business, lobbyists, government agencies, universities and business associations, among others. Basically, everybody who is interested in state legislation can benefit from our tools. You'll get legislative bill and amendment alerts within minutes, generate professional legislative reports for clients and stakeholders, collaboration tools and analytics - all packaged into the most intuitive legislative bill tracking software on the market.
