    • Board Watch – Provided as an annual service, Georgia Lobby monitors the Committee Notice Boards on all floors of the Capitol. This includes committee notices and study committee notices.  We alert you to any new notices and changes to notices via email.  First Readers and all Calendars are included in Board Watch.  We keep you informed about Special Study Committees created by the Legislature or Governor via email.
    • Bill Watch – This service is offered all year round. Georgia Lobby monitors specific bills as they move from First Readers to Committees to the House and Senate and final passage.  We alert you to any new notices and changes to notices via email.
    • Government Watch – Government Watch is a year round service which primarily monitors State Departments and State agencies regarding public meetings.  This is vitally important for the lobbyists who monitor public policy which is non legislative in nature.
    • Code Watch – Code Watch alerts the lobbyist to legislation that includes key words, phrases or code contained within legislation.  This customized service is critical for the lobbyist who wants to guarantee no legislation slips past his/her attention.  When Legislation “moves”, Code Watch identifies key words.  The House and Senate Calendars and First Readers list will be watched as well.
    • Client Watch Reports – This is a reporting tool used in conjunction with Bill Watch to report to clients concerning legislation followed.  It allows for the lobbyist to enter their own summaries of the legislation.

We assist you as you represent your organization or your clients. Georgia lobby is a service that will keep you informed of the very important committee meetings and their agendas and bills. As most lobbyist know, it is in the committees that most legislative work is done. Attendance at committee meetings can often mean legislative success or failure. Knowledge about proposed legislation is your key to effectiveness.

Most lobbyist spend hours at the Capitol just to keep informed about dates and times of House and Senate Committee meetings. Most will come to the Capitol everyday to review the Committee Boards for this purpose. Often as soon as they walk away from the boards, changes can be made. The information is often outdated as soon as you walk away. Lobbyist can spend hours before the House and Senate Clerks offices retrieving versions of proposed legislation. We do this for the lobbyist. We inform you via email of the dates and times and published agendas of committees. We link the bills to the Georgia Legislative Website. Georgia Lobby clients are reporting that this is an invaluable service to them. They no longer have to worry about missing an important meeting or not getting the latest legislative update.
