What MIRS Does . . .
We do news to keep our customers on top of the legislative/political process . . .
Few things can impact a business as fast as adverse legislation. If your business is subject to state level regulation, taxation or other policies - you need MIRS to keep you up to date on new and emerging legislation that could help or hurt your industry.
Currently MIRS informs over 18,000 Michigan businesses - read more about our journalism.
We do alerts . . .
Picture this. You're walking into a coalition meeting over an initiative that could dramatically alter the landscapefor your industry, union, association or corporation.
A key news release is issued representing a political ground shift. You know about it, because as you were walking into the meeting, a MIRS alert informed you of the release. You're better prepared than your coalition partners.
We do reports . . .
We use every opportunity we can to make it easy for our customers to manage information, uncover information and stay on top.
From recurring tracking reports you design, to morning executive emails summarizing all the news points and sources you need to know about.

We don't stop at the top of state government - we cover the public policy waterfront.
Millage elections proposal details and election night results
Financial proposal detail provided down to the city level - we cover them all, and tell you what types of proposals are passing and what kind of proposals are not. Each election where there are local proposals on the ballot, we provide an exhaustive list of proposals and outcomes helping local units of government and K-12 leaders understand the lay of the land.
Election night coverage second to none . . .
It's election night - 2016. One of the state's largest newspapers calls the race for president in Michigan for Hillary Clinton. The call came just as MIRS was going over our own exit polling showing the race too close to call. We let our subscribers know - hold on, it's not over. That night Donald Trump edged out Clinton.
MIRS also calls key legislative races as results come in.
