The data on this site were last updated on 3/22/19, and are based on information submitted to the Joint Center from various credible sources. The data is unofficial, however, as it has not been examined using the Joint Center’s research report methodology that identifies top staff on LegiStorm and confirms the data through several follow up contacts with the top staff in the position, a Member’s office, and staff associations of color.
