Note: Even though most of the above websites are produced by state governments, it is wise to verify their currency, completeness and accuracy. State session laws and state registers (often online) are generally used by states to update their state statutory codes and state administrative codes (some of which are not available online). The phone numbers given above provide contacts for state government operators, state legislatures, state legislative reference offices, and state law libraries which are often the state supreme court library or the law and legislative reference section of a state library.
