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. 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. See article by Paul Hellyer on reliability and currency of free online state codes.

Note: Besides the text of bills, most states have few documents that reveal legislative intent. However, some states may have committee staff analyses, governor's staff analyses, audio tapes of committee meetings or floor debate, or other documents included in a historical bill file.
