Finding and Tracking Bills

You can find and track the progress of legislative bills from current and past sessions using a free online service called LAWS (Legislative Automated Workflow System).

Using LAWS, you can find:

• Complete text of legislative bills
• Up-to-date status of bills
• Committee hearing schedules
Agendas for committee hearings & floor sessions
• House and Senate votes on bills

You can search the LAWS database using one or more of the following search criteria:

• General subject matter
• Keywords
• Bill number
• Bill sponsor
• Bill status

You can also create a preference list. This feature allows you to monitor any number of bills that are of particular interest to you by creating a free, password-protected online account.

You can sign up for notification by e-mail of public hearings scheduled for the bills on your preference lists.

To use LAWS, you will need a computer with internet access and an Adobe PDF reader (free download). Most public libraries have these if you don't.

For more information about using LAWS, visit the LAWS Help page.
