The Legislative Press and Public Information Bureau assists
legislators in dealing with media inquiries and the news media
through press releases and news conferences. The bureau’s publicists
also provide media counseling, compose opinion pieces and speeches
and edit reports and other written material. The Bureau also
enhances public access to this material by posting news releases and
other material on the General Assembly’s web site.
The bureau also provides legislators with copying services for
constituent and government correspondence, and prints and makes
available to the public copies of all legislation introduced and
considered in both chambers. Legislative Press also creates and
prints topic-related brochures and materials, citations and
memorials, commission reports and a wide variety of stationery
The bureau also keeps a newspaper-clipping file on each legislator
and on matters of public policy.
