Why do I need bill tracking for Washington legislation?
Tracking bills is hard, especially if you rely on state legislature websites! Thousands of bills get filed in Washington every year (and about 180,000 bills nationwide). Legislation gets introduced by bill sponsors, heard in committees, amended, passed, and becomes law. If you want to be an effective advocate, you need to know where legislation of interest stands, and act quickly.
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 they 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.
