  • Share

We’re often asked: what’s the difference between POLITICO California and POLITICO California Pro? Before we dive into the details, the key distinction is that California Pro is a premium subscription service that provides expert policy reporting and analysis to those on the front lines of California policy.


What is the difference between POLITICO California and POLITICO California Pro?

POLITICO California and the California Playbook morning newsletter provides leading state politics coverage and is available to all POLITICO readers. With reporting teams on the ground in Sacramento and San Francisco, POLITICO California and California Playbook are the California outposts of POLITICO’s political news journalism.

POLITICO California Pro is a state-level extension of POLITICO Pro’s trusted model of expert policy reporting and analysis. California Pro is a premium subscription-based service for policy professionals who rely on real-time news alerts and actionable intelligence to keep them ahead in their jobs and confident in their decision-making.

At a glance, a California Pro subscription offers:

  1. Detailed coverage of granular politics and policy topics.
  2. Access to policy tools that supplement California Pro’s premium policy reporting, including a legislative intelligence tool.
  3. Assorted account benefits, including a dedicated account manager and admission to POLITICO events.    

Do I have to be a paid subscriber to read POLITICO California?

While POLITICO California reporting is available to all, a subscription is required to access California Pro’s premium policy coverage (and any of the Pro-only newsletters, such as the California CEO Report, a high-level outlook on the policy issues driving the month).
