InState Resources

The InState Partners team knows the difficulties of managing and navigating multi-state efforts. To make assessing a multi-state political environment and monitoring legislative sessions a little easier, we’ve compiled a graphic view of all the top-level information in one place. We hope that by having this data companies can focus on opportunities and challenges: multi-state strategy, resource allocation and upcoming changes to the political landscape.
