MIRS provides comprehensive news and analysis of state government delivered in written reports detailing the activities of the House, Senate, Judicial and Executive branches of Michigan state government.
The company provides its service Monday through Friday of every week (we are closed on traditional government holidays). The reports include a written component (Capitol Capsule), and action reports which list the bills dealt with during each legislative session day in each chamber of the Legislature.
MIRS‘ Capitol Capsule features news on what is happening with key legislative initiatives, prospects for action, in-depth coverage of elections and coverage of key news events such as party conventions, public policy conferences and the like. Our reporters also bring you keen insight on what’s happening on issues, how those issues may impact state elections and politics and much more.
MIRS‘ action reports provide a detailed listing of introduced bills, bills on Second Reading (General Orders in the Senate), Third Reading, etc. We even tell you who successfully amended a bill on the floor of the House or Senate (a service exclusive to MIRS), and what legislative substitute is the latest for the bill you’re tracking.
Also included in MIRS‘ service are regular calendars of committee meetings, political fund raisers and executive branch meetings as well as a regular report on the state’s administrative rules process.
MIRS is available on-line through our web page. Subscribers also receive a daily e-mail outlining our headlines of the day as well as providing hyperlinks to the report on the world wide web of the Internet. Once logged on, subscribers can print off the report from the web. MIRS also is the most interactive legislative and political information service on the market.
Our clients are able to customize the appearance of their MIRS by moving content boxes on the right and left panes up or down, or hiding them all together. Clients can also change their own contact information, set their own MIRS home page to be opened each time they access the site.
MIRS also has a new “persistent log-in” feature. With this feature, you log-in once from your primary computer and you won’t be prompted to log-in again unless you are using a new computer or are away from home. Each log-in can be used up to four times per day.
