State legislators are often underfunded. Providing progressive state legislators with tools they need to be more effective could have outsize impacts on legislation:
- Tools like Legidash, for tracking legislative calendars, events in and around the capitol building, etc.
- Constituent services trackers, such as the idea Drew Ryun described in his Business of Politics interview at the 27:51 mark.
- Resources similar to those offered by the State Information Exchange, such as strategy sessions, customized research, and issue trainings.
Similar ideas apply to other legislative bodies, especially city councils in small- to mid-size cities.
