Track Policy Movements
It is predicted that it will be a busy lame-duck session for both chambers of Congress. High-priority items on the legislative to-do list include:
The government funding bill is the most pressing and is viewed as a must-pass bill. Therefore, it is often a magnet for lawmakers to tack on other priorities. And NDAA is widely expected to pass in the lame-duck session as well. NDAA is another must-pass bill and attracts unrelated legislation. FY23 NDAA has a wide range of potential amendments from sanctions on Russia to immigration and health provisions.
Pro’s Legislative Compass is a time-saving tool for policy professionals who need to stay on top of the new bills moving through federal and state level. Bill version comparison, note sharing, and priority and stance tracking features allow you to monitor legislation that matters most to your organization closely. The Appropriation Tracker within the Legislative Compass follows the 12 federal spending bills and shows changes as the House and Senate advance their legislation from the committee stage to presidential approval.
Find and Connect with Power Players
Now that you know what is at stake, you need to find the key players and reach them to advocate for your policy position. POLITICO Pro’s Stakeholder Management is an integrated solution built within the Pro platform. You can find key contacts, send emails, log interactions, export reports, evaluate engagements, and collaborate with team members seamlessly through one platform.
Stakeholder Management’s integration with Pro’s Congressional and state government directories means you will always have the most up-to-date contact information of key policymakers. You can also create targeted lists by using search filters to find contacts by Congressional committees, departments, agencies, party affiliations, freshmen status, and more.
The in-platform emailing and reporting features make executing outreach a breeze. You can create, schedule, and send emails to federal and state lawmakers and staffers with an easy-to-use email editor. And at-a-glance email performance and engagement reporting features help you measure the effectiveness of your outreach, optimize your strategy, and demonstrate return on investment (ROI). In 2023, subscribers will have more reporting and analytic tools to monitor lawmaker and influencer dialogue, analyze the nature and strength of existing relationships, and matchmake for new ones.
