LexisNexis just announced that it has acquired a service called State Net that reports federal and state legislative developments. Here's the Lexis press release describing the service courtesy of the Law Librarian Blog:
'Through the acquisition of State Net, LexisNexis has secured critical content and tools needed by legal and business professionals to rapidly monitor and analyze the policy decisions being made by Federal and State governments and regulatory agencies across the US on a daily basis,' said Bob Romeo, senior vice president of Research and Litigation Solutions at LexisNexis. 'Access to this critical information means our customers are at an advantage when assisting their clients in finding, analyzing and planning for those decisions.'
State Net collects, normalizes and editorially enhances all bills introduced in the 50 U.S. state legislatures, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Congress, as well as all agency regulations from every state. The service also provides timely delivery of data, legislative intelligence and in-depth content and tools reporting on the actions of government institutions.
State Net provides users access to information on individual legislative bills and their progress within twenty-four hours of public availability. It also enables subscribers to obtain current versions of bills and statutes, check the validity of statutes, track pending changes to statutes and regulations, and research historical summaries of legislative actions. State Net tools and content enable users to assess the impact of proposed legislation and regulations, influence proposed matters, and reduce compliance risk.
