GovNet or Government News Network is a prominent company that provides web-based legislative tracking tools for lobbyists, trade organizations, and other governmental affairs professionals. The company operates two related but separate services, GovNetNJ.com and GovNetPA.com, dedicated to New Jersey and Pennsylvania respectively.[1][2][3] Both sites use the same legislative tracking software developed over a 34-year period.[1][4] In 2005, GovNetPA purchased Capitolwire from the Associated Press and hired veteran journalists Pete DeCoursey and Albert J. Neri[5]

Research from GovNetNJ.com has been cited by the Philadelphia Inquirer.[6] Research from GovNetPA.com has been cited by the Lebanon Daily News.[7][8]
