I suggest Countable ...

Add more "local" options

Not all of us live in San Francisco or New York and it would be great to have a local bill tracking option for other states/countries

        Please help those of us with crazy state governments (Kansas) have a way to keep our representatives on track! We've got a great OpenGov group here in Wichita that would love to help this move forward!

        Local political decisions, particularly at the state level, tend to have a greater impact in every day life than federal policies. For example, the nation passed the Affordable Care Act, but many states decided not to use it to expand Medicaid.

        I agree. I would love to see a feature for Arkansas' bills and issues.

        This is a great app that is heading in the right direction.

        This would be fantastic! I'd love to see this in Phoenix, I know a lot more people are getting involved here and would help out.

        Yes I would love this locally! I would volunteer to help gather info for MA!

        I understand local is hard to gather, but doing state legislations would be easier and benefit those at the local level still.

        Maybe add Chicago, LA, Dallas, etc, to the local as far as cities go (definitely Chicago and LA at least) and then add states, starting with the "big" states (Texas, IL, NY, California, etc).

        I'm more than happy to help as far as making this happen for IL. I have some contacts within state government...the sooner we can make this happen the better. Please feel free to reach out to me.

        It would be great if there was a section for state laws. It doesn't even have to be by cities.

        Firstly, it would be fantastic if local , municipal, legislation was available. It would be hard to pilot but ,in a big city like NY the direct interaction of community reps and the people they serve could have more impact that you're able to achieve at the national level.

        I was also thinking that tying in the ability to financially support that representative through you app could be powerful. As long as it stayed more on the public's side to freely donate and wasn't opened to the reps themselves to campaign directly on the app.

        I believe this is something the team at Countable is working on.
