Use Our Stories?

Would you like to republish a story you see on Capitol Weekly?

A big part of our mission is to get good, nonpartisan, public policy information out to the widest number of people. Unless otherwise noted, you can republish our articles for free, either online or in print.  We ask that you contact us ( or 916 444 7665) to let us know that you will be using our material. Please include “Request to Republish Capitol Weekly” in the subject line of any emails.

How does it work?

Here are the rules:

Stories may not be edited, except to reflect relative changes in time, location and editorial style. (For example, “yesterday” can be changed to “last week,” and “Portland, Ore.” to “Portland” or “here.”)
If you’re republishing online, you must link to us and to include all of links from the original story.

You may not sell our material separately or syndicate it.

You may not state or imply that donations to your organization support Capitol Weekly’s work.

You may not republish our material wholesale; you need to select specific stories to be republished, and let us know each story that you will be using.

You may not republish our photographs or illustrations without specific prior permission (contact Rich Ehisen at 916 444 7665 or for details).

Any website our stories appear on must include a prominent and effective way to contact you.

You have to credit us in the byline. We prefer “Author Name, Capitol Weekly.” If your CMS does not allow you to do this, please include a line at the top of the story that reads: “This story was originally published by Capitol Weekly.”
