The U.S legislative process is a dynamic system affording you many opportunities to shape public policy and lawmaking. In order to be effective and secure results, preparation is essential. To make the most of your legislative efforts there are numerous considerations including issue ripeness, stakeholders, cost and tax ramifications, to name a few.
In addition to administrative and regulatory law, individuals and companies can also be subject to various forms of Congressional inquiries. Of all Congressional powers, oversight is one of its most powerful tools. Congressional inquiries arise in various manners ranging from requests for information from individual Members of Congress to subpoenas from Congressional Committees.
Congressional inquiries often have simultaneous ramifications: legal, political, and public relations. Matters can be referred for criminal prosecution or result in stringent legislative action. Many times activities may involve a great deal of media scrutiny.
