During the 2012 legislative session, Sutherland Institute will provide insight and analysis of votes, meetings, debates, legislation and policy from a conservative perspective. The goal is to provide our readers with in-depth reporting on issues vital to them that might not be covered as closely by other media.

You can find archives of our Capitol Daily videos and memos below. And you can sign up for e-mail updates here and our blog feed here. We hope you enjoy our coverage of the 2012 session.
