Governing is a national monthly magazine, edited and published since 1987 in Washington, D.C., whose subject area is state and local government in the United States. The magazine covers policy, politics, and the management of government enterprises. Its subject areas include such issues as government finance, land use, economic development, the environment, technology, and transportation.
For most of its life, Governing was published by Washington, D.C.–based Congressional Quarterly, Inc., a subsidiary of the Times Publishing Co. of St. Petersburg, Florida. In 1994, Governing acquired its primary competitor, City & State magazine, and that publication was merged into Governing. In 2009, it was sold to e.Republic.
On August 7, 2019, the magazine announced that it would discontinue publication; its September 2019 issue would be the last print edition, and it would close its website and other operations over the next few months.
