Today’s public sector leaders govern during a period of dramatic shifts in technology, demography, climate and the economy. Governing: The Future of States and Localities takes on the question of what state and local government looks like in this world of rapid change.

Our mission is to be a reliable and essential resource to help public leaders successfully navigate these emerging challenges. To achieve this mission, Governing has assembled a team of experienced journalists, policy experts, historians, scholars and former public officials. Together, they offer an intelligent take on the operational, policy and ethical implications of these societal changes on state and local government.

Governing’s readers set the priorities, decide the strategies and budgets and manage the programs involving more than $3 trillion in annual spending by more than 15 million state and local government employees. Readership consists of governors, mayors, county executives, city and county council members, state legislators, state and local agency executives and those holding key professional government positions.

Governing's information platform includes a robust website, newsletters and custom content.

Launched in 1987 by Congressional Quarterly, Governing was acquired in 2009 by e.Republic, the nation’s only media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government.

You (Governing) share my passion and love for public service and you treat it in a way that makes it feel good to do it.

Jim Ward, House Minority Leader, State of Kansas
