The Legislative Study Group

And as long as I’m touting sites with information about the bills that the Lege will be considering, let me also give a shoutout to the Legislative Study Group. They’ve been around since 1995, they do a ton of research on just about every bill that comes through the Lege, and they have a real effect on the debate – among other things, their research was a factor in getting the votes of the Hochberg Fourteen in 2005.

And they could use a little help. As Vince points out, the LSG is a caucus, so there’s no governmental funding for their work. They rely on donations, and they’ve got some fundraisers coming up to generate some:

If you can’t make it to any of these, you can also click here to contribute directly. Phillip has more on the LSG. I have a feeling you’ll be hearing their name and seeing some examples of their work in the coming months.

    Rep. Coleman does an excellent job with the LSG. They really scrub those bills and are the saving graces for staffers during Session.
