Legislative Analysis

Virginia's citizen legislators need good, independent analysis of proposed and suggested legislation, as well as analysis of the reports of legislative study commissions, in order to better represent the voters in their districts and in our Commonwealth.

This Thomas Jefferson Institute Center offers this analysis and original research to our state legislators.
