About LRI

Experience Delivers Quality
Legislative Research & Intent LLC was co-founded in 1983 by Carolina Rose, a Stanford Law School graduate. This was preceded by 7 years of intense, hands-on work in the California State Legislature, during which time she had personal responsibility for over 200 bills. After answering countless questions about the legislative history and intent of her office's legislation, she decided to start her own legislative research company with a strong focus on quality and depth. Ms. Rose directs a talented team of researchers and personally designs and oversees all of LRI's research methodologies. Her commitment to excellence remains the driving force behind every LRI research report.
