Yellow Sheet Report is Arizona’s premier political tip sheet.

First published in 1906, Yellow Sheet got its name from the yellow onionskin paper on which it originally was printed.

Our subscribers are Arizona’s political movers and shakers, high-level elected officials and lobbyists who rely on Yellow Sheet to keep them ahead of the competition and up to date on the latest news, notes and gossip from the Arizona Capitol and beyond.

Our reporters are embedded inside the halls and backrooms of government to bring subscribers behind-the-scenes scoops and unparalleled access to what policymakers are saying, along with detailed political analysis and breaking news stories. Besides our beloved “News, Notes and Gossip” section, each daily edition includes full reprints of relevant documents, press releases and a roundup of local and national news our readers need to know.

Our editor is Hank Stephenson, a veteran capitol reporter who has written about Arizona politics for The New York Times, Politico and a variety of local publications. Reach him at hstephenson@azcapitoltimes.com or (602) 889-7126.

Arizona News Service is a multi-faceted Capitol news service that produces the Arizona Capitol Times, Arizona Legislative Report, Legislation On-Line Arizona (LOLA), Yellow Sheet Report and AzLobbyists.  It also publishes Citizen Government Guide, Government Resource Directory, Book of Lobbyists, The Guide to the Legislature (The Green Book) and a host of other special publications and focus issues for the legislative, business and legal communities. Arizona News Service was founded in 1906, six years before Arizona became a state.

Arizona Capitol Times is the leading source of political news from the state Capitol and beyond. We highlight the important issues of the moment, from a non-partisan and well-researched perspective that is critical to our readers. Our coverage influences policy, defines important issues and connects the various communities that make up state government.

The newspaper is published weekly on Fridays, and azcapitoltimes.com is updated by the minute as news breaks. The newspaper was operated as The Messenger and Arizona Legislative Review before taking the name Arizona Capitol Times in 1982.

The newspaper covers state politics and policy with a focus on the daily activities of the Arizona Senate, Arizona House of Representatives and the state’s top elected officials, including the Governor’s Office. Reporters also cover elections, court rulings and the actions of local governments. The paper regularly features commentaries, letters to the editor, an event calendar, legal notices, people-in-the-news pages, listings of state contracts, an Arizona news roundup page and political news from other states.

Legislation On Line Arizona, also known as LOLA, is an internet-based legislative bill tracking service that provides custom tools for researching, monitoring and analyzing Arizona legislation. The service includes coverage of bill activity, postings of committee and calendar agendas, and links to bill text, amendments, fact sheets, fiscal notes and vote tallies. The service also allows you to track legislation, create reports, analyze votes and contact legislators.

Arizona Legislative Report is a hard-copy newsletter published and hand delivered to subscribers every day during the Legislative session. It contains exclusive legislative news, plus copies and summaries of all bills filed during the legislative session, all adopted amendments, a daily record of bill activity from committees and the House and Senate floors, weekly bill status indexes, upcoming committee hearing agendas, and a post-session report of enactments.
