Legislative Analysis

What it is

The number of new privacy laws introduced in states increases each year. We support public agencies in analyzing the impact legislation has on established and emerging Integrated Data Systems (IDS). Our team is available to assist public agencies in determining the impact of proposed legislation to ensure impacts on an IDS are understood and intentional.

Providing thoughtful analysis of what proposed legislation has on an existing IDS ensures that public agencies raise awareness and fully explain the effect of proposed legislation and its impact on an IDS after laws are passed.

  • We accept requests for technical assistance through our website or by email ([email protected]). 
  • We discuss your needs and work collaboratively with you to develop a technical assistance plan. Working together helps us understand the operation of your IDS, your current plans for improvement, and your goals.
