Legislative Histories

A legislative history tracks the progress of a particular bill toward becoming law, including the text(s) of the bill and documents created during the process of sponsoring and voting the bill. A legislative history can help you understand the purpose of the bill and its status as law.

The Georgia Archives has a step-by-step guide for researching legislative histories to get you started.
