Governing Magazine

Governing magazine has told important stories for over three decades. So it is with a very heavy heart that we’re announcing that Governing will be discontinuing publication this fall. We will cease publication of the monthly print magazine after September.

The tremendous outpouring of support and your personal stories about when you first began reading Governing, how it helped you make important decisions and find a community among like-minded public servants, affirmed the important place Governing holds in state and local government.

We have been overwhelmed by reader responses and we are listening.

The Daily newsletter will continue to publish news and will continue to be available. Stay with us over the coming weeks for details on how the Governing you've relied on for decades can become the Governing you need now and tomorrow.

Be sure to subscribe to the Daily newsletter to continue to get the news that matters to state and local decision-makers.
