Getting started with the ENACT Local Policy Database is quick and easy:

Searching for a Local Policy

There are 2 ways to search for a local policy:

1) The Simple Search
2) The Guided Search

Simple Search

Start with the simple search if you have some ideas about the kinds of policies you are seeking. This is basically a keyword search that allows you to either search through the policy details on our entire database.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Enter key words or terms that interest you in the blank field. For example, if you are interested in policies regarding beverage vending policies, you might type in beverage, vending in the empty field.
  • Click Search!
  • Results generated from your search will include a list of policies containing the search terms entered.

If you would like to search our entire database, leaving the field empty and click search to show all of the policies.

Still not finding what you want? Try the Guided Search below.

The Guided Search

Start with The Guided Search if you have one or more criteria you would like to use to narrow your search.

Here’s how you do it:

Use the drop down menus to select from pre-determined search criteria listed in the left column under Guided Search. You can make a selection from one or more of the menu categories as you wish. Categories include Topic, Environment, Keywords, State, Jurisdiction and Year.

For example, if you want to see what measures have been undertaken in nutrition at the school district level, you can select Nutrition as a "Topic" and School Districts as an "Environment." Or if you are interested in all the policies passed in 2011, just select the year 2011 from the "Year" category. After you hit search, you’ll see the policies that fit your interests. From here, access the actual policies and adapt them to fit your needs.
