Whether we’re trying to pass, amend or defeat a bill, impacting the legislative process requires good strategy, good messaging, good contacts and good timing. Our team works extensively with the legislative leadership, committee chairs, members and staff. We routinely draft bills and amendments, prepare testimony, brief staff, engage the Executive Branch and coordinate the many moving parts involved in the process. We understand what our target audience cares about and how to make your issues relevant to the decision makers.
Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting
Information is power. We employ a state-of-the-art monitoring system that keeps you abreast of every move the Legislature makes on the issues you care about. We provide bill tracking, calendar reports and activity reports to clients every time the legislature conducts business. More importantly, we provide intelligence gleaned from personal interaction with those in and around the process. We will help you understand what is happening, why and how best to impact the process.
Coalition Building & Management
Rare is the issue that impacts an audience of one. Organizing, leading or joining a coalition of individuals or organizations who share your goals can help improve the prospects for success. We help our clients identify potential partnerships, evaluate the potential benefits and liabilities and purse those relationships that make sense.
Engaging government can often trigger a dizzying array of rules, regulations, laws and reporting requirements. Our clients appreciate our strict attention to detail when it comes to helping them understand and comply with those rules.
We provide, for example, assistance with the standards for ethical business conduct and compliance with restrictions on political contributions. Whether you require our assistance with an isolated regulatory matter or broader insight into best practices and upcoming trends, the Kaufman Zita Group will provide you with strategic counsel to help you get the job done in compliance with – and adherence to – the constraints of the law.
