  • DOT Wants To Keep Oil Trains On the Rails
    The Green Mien, Peter Lohnes, 7/28/2014

    There’s a lot of oil coming up out of the ground in the U.S. right now. Especially in North Dakota and Montana where there is a good old fashioned oil boom underway. We’ve noted before that increasingly that oil is making its way to market by rail. Given the unprecedented ramp up in production, it was […]

    Law Firm Memos
    Whether you’re looking for a nuanced legal interpretation of an obscure topic or just a primer on an issue you need to grasp quickly, our remarkable Law Firm Memos database has what you need. This “virtual law firm” is updated daily and features over 100,000 memos, articles, and alerts from attorneys in North America’s top law firms.
    Long one of Knowledge Mosaic’s most popular features, the Law Firm Memos database features expert legal commentary on 46 searchable topics, including such diverse areas as Antitrust & Competition, Energy, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Public Health & Health Care, and Transportation law. You can even set up a customized email alert by topic, authoring firm, or text string.
    Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials
    Discover why we toyed with naming this search page "The Kitchen Sink." Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials offers nothing less than federated searching across the entire federal legislative and regulatory landscape.
    Here’s what that means. From a single starting point, you can troll across a broad swath of federal agencies -- including major financial, antitrust, energy, environmental, communications, and labor regulators -- plus major congressional oversight bodies, Congress itself, the Federal Register, even the statutory and regulatory codes that define the laws and rules of our country. All that coverage, integrated, faceted, unified, and simple.
    Our ambitious goal is to display the abundance of materials and information that spills beyond traditional agency boundaries on any important topic. We want to bridge the Beltway and sweep away the search silos that currently constrain research and limit the transparency of government information.
    GAO Reports
    Everything under the sun — or at least every subject under the purview of public policymakers — has at some point been studied by the Government Accountability Office, the federal think tank commonly known as the "Congressional watchdog."
    On Knowledge Mosaic’s Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials page, there are over 40,000 GAO reports, on topics as diverse as cybersecurity, nuclear waste disposal, the Troubled Asset Relief Program, anabolic steroid use among athletes, the U.S. embargo on Cuba, alternative fuels, campaign finance reform, and the regulation of hedge funds. This vast archive of information is easily accessible and instantly searchable. As a single source for in-depth, professional research and analysis covering a broad spectrum of subject matter, our GAO reports database is unrivaled — except, perhaps, by our comparably broad and deep database of Law Firm Memos.
