Introduction Print Page


The key to successfully locating a state's legislative history documents is to understand the state's legislative process and to identify the documents generated during that process. This information can vary significantly from state to state, but can be found in state-specific legislative history research guides.

This resource was created in 2001 to index legislative history guides for all 50 states.


Fifty States and the District of Columbia
