American Constitution Society

Tracking Key Regulations and Policymaking in States

Posted on:

  • Training Provided: Yes
  • Training Required: No
  • Volunteer Needed On-site: No

The American Constitution Society is expanding its Notice and Comment Project, which monitors regulations and policymaking and then highlights select opportunities that may be of interest to our members, to include all 50 states. There is currently no single location to find proposed regulatory changes for all 50 states. Not only that, but many state proposed regulatory changes are difficult to monitor and not easily accessible to the general public. ACS is looking for volunteers to monitor, on a weekly basis, state notices of proposed rulemaking. Volunteers will be assigned one state to monitor and will send in to ACS their edited findings each week. ACS will provide instructions on how to track each specific state’s notices and guidance on the type of notices that align with ACS priorities. ACS will feature select notices on its website and regularly share state notices in targeted emails. This is a long-term project and ACS will work with volunteers to determine the length of volunteer commitment. Volunteers are also welcome to draft and submit their own personal comments on issues they are interested in.
