Don’t let the Legislature waste your time

One of the toughest aspects of being an advocate or lobbyist is never knowing when your bills will be discussed — wasting time that could otherwise be spent supporting clients. With the promise that the 2019 legislative session will be packed with bills on property taxes, school finance, healthcare and infrastructure, you need a way to stay up-to-date on the issues that matter most without waiting around. That way is BillsUpNow.

BillsUpNow is a legislative tracking service providing a real-time notification the moment a bill of interest to you is taken up on the floor or in committee. It was built on nearly 50 years of combined knowledge and experience dealing with the Texas legislative process — on watching and listening to thousands of hours of testimony and serving on both the public and the private side. In short, we know what you need: You need your time back.

In addition to providing real-time alerts when it’s time to listen or weigh in on an issue, a paid BillsUpNow subscription allows anyone to view meetings live or on-demand and share time-stamped videos seamlessly — even with clients and stakeholders who don’t use our service. Our keyword search functionality also ensures users aren’t missing any comments or legislation that could affect their bills. Think of it as an insurance policy.

As CEO of BillsUpNow, I meet frequently with government-relations professionals and hear their similar concerns: Each of them wants to be informed and engaged on the issues that matter to their clients without missing anything. There is always a need to do more with less time while ensuring everyone stays on the same page. At a time when there is an app or alert for almost every aspect of work, why not have real-time alerts for bills that could meaningfully improve life in Texas?

The mission of BillsUpNow™ is to save time for anyone involved in the policymaking process. Our legislative tracking service offers paid subscriptions for anyone to stay up-to-date on the issues that matter most, without sacrificing their schedules.​
