Why Create a Profile

A Legislative Insight profile is a list of searches, legislative histories, or individual documents you want to save to view at a later point. 

Log in to your profile by clicking on the link in the upper left corner of the page. Once you've logged in, you can go back to review and edit what is in your profile by clicking on the link in the same place (the upper left corner of the page).
