Scout is an alert system for the things you care about in state and national government. It covers Congress, regulations across the whole executive branch, and legislation in all 50 states.
You can set up notifications for new things that match keyword searches. Or, if you find a particular bill you want to keep up with, we can notify you whenever anything interesting happens to it — or is about to.
Just to emphasize, this is a beta – it functions well and looks good, but we’re really hoping to hear from the community on how we can make it stronger. You can give us feedback by using the Feedback link at the top of the site, or by writing directly to email@example.com.
Legal terminology variation between states plus the feds is going to make keyword searches iffy.
Will vary among areas of law.
Greatest variation in family and criminal law, least among some parts of commercial law.
Anyone know if there is a cross-index of terminology between the legal systems of the states?
