Tracking Key Regulations and Policymaking in States

Make an impact by amplifying important changes to federal regulations.

Posted November 13, 2018

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.

American Constitution Society

The American Constitution Society (ACS) believes that law should be a force to improve the lives of all people. ACS works for positive change by shaping debate on vitally important legal and constitutional issues through development and promotion of high-impact ideas to opinion leaders and the media; by building networks of lawyers, law students, judges and policymakers dedicated to those ideas; and by countering the activist conservative legal movement that has sought to erode our enduring constitutional values.
