LexisNexis State Net Launches Major Upgrades, Celebrates 50 Years of Innovation

— December 23, 2019

An advanced new platform, search engine, and analytics for government affairs and compliance professionals is the perfect way to celebrate 50 years of innovation.

LexisNexis Legal & Professional® announced significant upgrades to the State Net® platform, which the world’s leading companies, associations and law firms rely on to monitor, comply with, and respond to legislation and regulation. State Net provides unmatched content, speed, and analytics, helping government affairs and compliance professionals act quickly and confidently. With the announcement of search, content, design, and analytical improvements, State Net extends its leadership in legislative and regulatory tracking and engagement.

“Government affairs and compliance work has never been more complex. Professionals must quickly make sense of massive amounts of information coming from legislatures and agencies,” said Daniel Lewis, vice president of product at LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “The vast majority of legislation and regulation takes place at the state, county and city level, which requires understanding and monitoring thousands of jurisdictions. This year State Net celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, and we’ve poured those years of experience into advanced new software that provides deeper insights, faster results, more content, and cutting-edge analytics.”

  • A one-stop dashboard that enables professionals to track all the legislation that matters to them in one place, easily seeing changes, amendments, and notes.
  • Monitoring government activity for hundreds of the largest cities and counties.

These upgrades expand on State Net’s trusted tools for tracking legislation and regulation, receiving timely alerts of key events, and sharing intelligence between colleagues and organizations.
