There Is No Off Season

The legislature has adjourned and the recall elections are over, but that does not mean that the Hamilton Consulting team is slowing down! Now is the time to ensure that implementation of bills passed during the 2011-12 Legislative Session goes as planned and to prepare for next session.

The Hamilton team is working to make sure our clients have the tools necessary to accomplish their government relations goals.

The Hamilton Consulting team closely monitors the implementation of client-supported bills passed in previous sessions. Implementation efforts often take the form of agency rulemaking, and Hamilton is there to help our clients draft comments and provide input to the drafters.

The summer interim is the perfect time to develop working relationships with legislators and the administration as they begin to craft policy proposals to be introduced in the future.

To succeed in government relations, an organization must be attuned to politics, to the people who are engaged in that arena and to the campaigns and activities that keep or put people in power. It is Hamilton Consulting’s combination of policy expertise, political awareness and attentiveness to the legislative/regulatory processes that allow us to develop workable and attainable solutions for our clients. We could not do this if government relations were part of our focus or even our primary focus. We succeed because government relations is 100 percent of our focus, 100 percent of the time.
