Virginia's Legislative Tracking Service
In partnership with the General Assembly's Division of Legislative Automated Systems, DLAS, the Virginia Information Providers Network, VIPNet, is offering a free legislative tracking service. The new service allows users to track up to 5 bills in their profile. The new legislative tracking service is based on the popular Lobbyist-In-A-Box service which has been widely used by professional lobbyists and public entities for several years. With this Legislative Tracking Service, users can:
- Create their own profile that organizes bills by subject or topical area by using search parameters (keywords, patrons, committees, subject, or code sections) that return a list from which you may select bills to add to your profiles.
- Elect to receive email notification when new bills are offered or changed.
- Utilize reporting features including a comma-delimited format and a composite view or capsule summary of their profile that shows each bill's common title, patron(s), committee assignment, and most recent action.
