Jim Sedor and News You Can Use

In August 2000, Editor Jim Sedor began gathering news important to government relations professionals and has offered more than 60 articles a week. More than 45,000 articles later, State and Federal Communications is proud to celebrate the 19th anniversary of News You Can Use! Nowhere else will you find a more comprehensive and vital snapshot of what is happening in the areas of ethics, lobbying, and campaign finance.

Jim scours articles printed in newspapers across the country, and write short informative summaries of each. The summary is then provided as a weekly email and is also posted to the State and Federal Communications Web site.

The unprecedented News You Can Use resource offers:

  • hundreds of article highlights and overviews every month;
  • references from newspapers throughout the county;
  • timely, informative and up-to-the minute news;
  • and personalized service provided weekly (for ALERTS™ consulting clients).

To obtain this free service you will need to subscribe to one or more of the online Executive Source Guides, or become an ALERTS™ consulting client.
