Finding Bills & Bill Status

Finding Session Laws

After successful progression through the legislative process, each newly enacted bill is assigned a chapter number by the Secretary of State. The bills are numbered consecutively in the order in which they are received. The compilation of chaptered bills are called sessions laws and are published annually in the Statutes and Amendments to the Codes. The year and chapter number identify the chronological order of enactment.
