State legislatures conduct oversight in countless ways and often through committees and with help from partner agencies. In 2019, the Levin Center commissioned a report, Checks and Balances in Action: Legislative Oversight Across the States, that identified and analyzed the oversight mechanisms and activities in the 50 states. The State Legislative Oversight Wiki presents key information from that report while serving as a mechanism for collecting additional state-specific oversight data and facilitating updates by the states themselves or others.
The new Wiki version is now easier to navigate, includes hundreds of new committees with jurisdictional oversight authority, and it is now searchable by topic, keyword, or state.
As before, the Wiki is interactive – if you want to submit new content ideas or corrections for your state, please use this form.
