Bill Quick Reference

Contents

  1. Search Tips
  2. What's Included?
  3. File Formats
  4. Common Abbreviations

If you are looking for a specific phrase such as prestige license (using an example from the summary above), enter the exact phrase.  Example:

prestige license

Use connecting terms (and, or, and not) to assist in your search.  Examples:

prestige and italian

license or plate and italian

license not boat

The percent-sign (%) can be used as a wildcard.  Replace any characters you want to match with the percent-sign.  Example:

tax% (matches "tax", "taxes", "taxation", etc.)

Only one criterion may be used at a time to search -- either by number, by summary, or by author. You are not able at this time to search for all the education bills with Senator "X" as the author or all Senate Bills using the term hospital.

What's Included: Once you have selected a legislative instrument (bill, resolution, concurrent resolution), you will have several choices to select from - all versions of the legislative instrument, amendments, the history (bill status), a digest, fiscal note, and/or votes, if available.
