"Since 1975, NCSL has been the champion of state legislatures. We've helped states remain strong and independent by giving them the tools, information and resources to craft the best solutions to difficult problems. We've fought against unwarranted actions in Congress and saved states more than $1 billion. We've conducted workshops to sharpen the skills of lawmakers and legislative staff in every state. And we do it every day."
