TIPS FOR GOOGLE SEARCHING POLICY INFO

Can't find enough policy information about your issue? 

Try searching "issue brief" or "policy brief," along with your topic (and "Massachusetts" or "Boston" if you're looking for state/local policies).  

Issue and policy briefs are short summaries of a particular issue, policy, or problem.  

Also look for reports, overviews, and summaries on your topic.
