  • Legislative Outlook, a visual tool using predictive analytics and sophisticated algorithms, reports the likelihood of a bill’s passage through the legislative process.


  • Reason for Shepard’s Signal™ displays the citing reference that had the strongest influence on the Shepard’s Signal analysis.
