LegisWeb, a content partner of Capitol Weekly that provides extensive online bill tracking and other professional services, is launching The LegisWeb Eye, a comprehensive Web site of legislative information, news content and analysis.
The site, updated continuously, “separates the news from the noise so that readers can be informed without being overwhelmed,” the company said. The site will include news stories and opinion pieces gathered from newspapers and broadcast outlets, basic bill-tracking tools, calendar information and more.
“People who are interested in the developing policies and laws of California will get consise summaries from multiple points of view.” says Bradlee Chang, a co-founder of LegisWeb.
“With all the posturing and maneuvering by our politicians and candidates for office, it is easy to lose sight of the real issues facing the state. LegisWeb’s Eye addresses this by using advanced software algorithms to sift through the noise to bring public discussions and the proposed policy changes together in a very useful way” says Grant Vergottini, another co-founder of LegisWeb.
LegisWeb’s Eye is built upon LegisWeb’s existing premium bill-tracking service. Since 2007, LegisWeb has been providing professionals such as lobbyists, corporations, and advocacy groups with comprehensive bill tracking. LegisWeb pioneered “As Amends the Law” – which highlights the changes to the law being proposed by pending legislation. LegisWeb is also the only bill tracking service that has continuous monitoring for real-time updates.
LegisWeb is a product of Xcential Group, LLC, a software and consulting company focused on legislative systems. Xcential has been providing consulting and systems to the State of California’s Office of Legislative Counsel (OLC) and other customers since 2002. Xcential’s LegisPro Editor is the bill drafting system and LegisPro Publisher is the publishing system for the OLC. These products have been used by the Legislature to create all legislation since 2005, totaling over 50,000 bills and amendments.
