The Center for Policy Alternatives is a very neat organization that focuses on state legislators and their legislative victories.
They have a report out here on 2004 successes.
One great bill out of Massachusetts that I'll be trying to replicate in Illinois (from the Center's email):
Massachusetts Passes Corporate Accountability Legislation
The Massachusetts legislature last month became the first in the nation to require its state government to compile an annual list of which companies' employees and their dependents use state health benefits the most, and what it costs taxpayers. The requirement, included in the state budget, applies to employers with more than 50 workers.
