What some of our subscribers say about us:
"For many years State House News Service has been an absolutely
indispensable tool for both our government relations and communication
departments. It is, without question, the most effective means in electronic
print for us to keep tabs on the vast array of activities taking place on the
Hill. The material is timely, well written and extremely accurate. And, by
continually upgrading its online offerings, SHNS is keeping on the cutting edge
of information dissemination."
"Twenty years ago, shortly after I became executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, a friend who had been a State House aide gave me this valuable advice: subscribe to the State House News Service. For the first year or two, I impressed various allies with my inside knowledge of everything that was happening on Beacon Hill; then, unfortunately, they found out about the service and subscribed themselves. A few years ago, our director of operations started getting the service online, so once again I knew everything before everybody else. Unfortunately, almost everyone is online now. What do I have to do to be perceived as the smartest kid on the block again?"

"As a professor teaching a graduate governmental affairs course at
Boston University, I find the daily news feed from State House News Service a
vital tool in understanding what is going on in Massachusetts legislative action
in the battle of the budget. The reports often cover important hearings
and contain insights on not only what happened, but why it happened. In
short, anyone who is affected by state government actions (and that's about all
of us) should have access to State House News Service."
"You cannot be involved as a player at the State House or within City
Hall without subscribing to the State House News Service. It is the quickest,

clients. As a one-person shop, the information that SHNS provides me during the
course of the day makes my job of being everywhere at the same time much easier.
It's like having a staff to cover hearings, sessions, and press conferences. I
am never caught off guard with SHNS. The Roundup - Advances - and editor's
advisories are the best!!"
"The State House News Service is an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute information on the important political and policy developments in
Massachusetts and how those relate to national politics as well. We receive a
daily briefing on critical debates and decisions about legislation, judicial
decisions, regulatory policy and key appointments. I use the News service not
only to stay informed about policy and political conflicts, but as an
indispensable teaching tool for our students in the Women in Politics and
Government Graduate Certificate Program. Our students are required to do
research on contemporary public policy issues and the political dynamics
surrounding decision making. The State House News Service serves as an
invaluable point of departure for discussion and research. Keep up the good
