Legislative, Election, Lobbying, Campaign Finance and Voting Law News

Compliance with election laws are critical to individuals, elected officials, campaign committees, political party committees, and other political organizations. The National Law Review provides emerging news on laws governing elections (at the federal, state, and local government levels), campaign finance, government ethics, and lobbying. You’ll find news on the latest election cycle, including news about the Trump transition, his presidential appointments, and his administration, as well as actions before the Federal Election Committee ("FEC") and involving political action committees ("PACs"). We track appropriations legislation through Congress, including the passage of continuing resolutions to avoid governnent shut-downs. You’ll also find election and legislative news at the state and local government level.

Additionally, the National Law Review’s coverage includes weekly legislative updates on the agenda in the Senate and the House of Representatives, as well as updates on international government and election news, including news on the United Kingdom’s trigger of Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, an event commonly known as “Brexit”.
