Since its establishment in 2006 as a set of spreadsheets, Gavel to Gavel maintained itself as “A review of state legislation affecting the courts.” However, this has admitted and regrettably given short shrift to the other parts of the United States that are not states:
- Territory of American Samoa
- Territory of Guam
- Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
- Commonwealth of Puerto Rico
- United States Virgin Islands
- District of Columbia
In 2011 Gavel to Gavel began an annual practice of focusing a week on these specific non-states and that practice continues for a week starting today.
