The best place to start is the Government Information Guide. Once in the guide, mouse over the blue tab "Government Information by Branch" and click on the link for "Find legislative analysis." There are several resources listed that are very useful for analyzing public policy issues. Before you can access the databases, you will be prompted for your Hofstra username/password.
You can also get to the specific databases mentioned above directly from the Library homepage (www.hofstra.edu/library/). Click in the blue bar DATABASES by SUBJECT. You will see a drop down menu where you can select Politics/Government or you can use the A to Z list.
In addition you will also want to look at newspaper articles. From the Library homepage (www.hofstra.edu/library/) click in the blue DATABASES BY SUBJECT. You will see a drop down menu where you can select Newspapers.
If you are not a member of the Hofstra Community, please contact, Georgina Martorella, the Depository Coordinator for assistance with government information.
