• Advocacy in Action

    With every seat in the Florida House and Senate up for election this year, incumbents and candidates alike are focused on their campaigns during the summer. So how can you engage in advocacy when the last thing on their minds is legislation? As we've shared before, the foundation for successful advocacy is a strong relationship with your legislator. Campaigns are an excellent opportunity to focus on building that relationship.

Why Councils Get Things Done: Size Does Matter

Source: Scott Paine
Anyone who has been an observer of legislatures is likely to notice some important variations in their performance.
The British Parliament is often a rather raucous place, with members of the “loyal opposition” shouting out in objection during speeches by the prime minister or his/her various Cabinet secretaries. In comparison, our Congress is a most civil and proper place.
Beyond the noise, there is the question of productivity. Are there discernible patterns that distinguish one kind of legislature from another when it comes to getting the public’s business done?
