Legislative Outlook uses predictive analytics and sophisticated algorithms to determine and report the likelihood of a bill’s passage through the legislative process. Legislative Outlook displays an at-a-glance meter of a bill’s probability for advancing to the next legislative step, based on the politics of the jurisdiction, the sponsor(s)’s influence and past success rate, and other empirical data.
