Consider "tags" equivalent to a "concept".
A "tag" is no more than a label that groups related legislative proposals, people, or committees together. It is no more than a concept: an abstract idea; a general notion.
Tagging is a powerful way to categorize bills and create value. It allows us to answer questions like these:
- Which representative is best to reach out to about
- Show me bills that relate to
- What are the top priorities for the Wisconsin legislature?
When a bill comes in, anyone can tag it, and much like Wikipedia, we crowdsource information to create a rich and accurate database.
Assembly Bill 1 (AB1) relates to policies surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. While it would be searchable using
covidin the bill search page, it is beneficial to tag this as a
Covidbill so that it can be more easily be found.
This tag should be public.
Private tags are visible only to your organization. When you create a tag, it will default to being private.
Only use private tags when your tag defines proprietary information, like which of your clients is interested in this legislation, or the bill's priority.
Examples of private tags
american bankers association,
national labor relations board, etc.
Good to know: Tags are a very powerful tool. Using them correctly will save you immense time and energy in the long run.
