After finding success for its bill-following and report-generating software outside the borders of its own state of Ohio, in 2011, Hannah News Service expanded its existing operations in Columbus and Frankfort, Kentucky, and situated a third office across the street from a state capitol. This time Hannah News set boots on the ground in Springfield, Illinois.

As it had previously, the unmatched leader of Statehouse news, information and research since 1986 recruited experts from the legislation-tracking field to lead its efforts in Illinois. The third of four states to be represented in the Hannah News family of companies, the Springfield office contingent worked with clients in its infancy to develop Illinois-centric online products and tools. And because of the massive number of bills introduced in Illinois, Hannah News developers worked to make the system more robust and hearty, as well.

Hannah News executives are encouraged at the success the company has seen in Illinois, and its expansion continues at an unprecedented rate. Clients are often encouraged to give feedback and offer suggestions as to how Hannah can be more effective, useful and provide better services to its users. Always innovating, the company strives to save lobbyists, association executives, legislative liaisons and government entities time and effort for their advocacy programs and initiatives.
