State & Federal Legislators
To find a state legislator, simply choose Legislators under State Legislation on the search drop-down and enter all or part of the person's name in the search bar. For a federal legislator, do the same but under Federal Legislation.

Under Overview, you’ll find basic information on the legislator, any committee or caucuses they're part of, similar legislators, top policy issues and that legislator's ideology.
