New Laws - About

Main About Search

From this web page, you can access stories about all newly enacted laws, bills that were vetoed and updates on bills that, while may be receiving a lot of attention, did not make it into law.

The stories are categorized under topics such as Agriculture, Consumers and Taxes.

When you find the story, you will see that the House file (HF), Senate file (SF) and Chapter (CH) numbers appear to the right of the story along with the name of the House and Senate sponsors. An asterisk indicates the version of the bill sent to the governor. Stories on major appropriations or omnibus policy laws include references to article and section numbers, wherever possible. Effective dates are also included in most stories.

Special Session Laws are listed with all the new law stories for that year. You may also filter the list for only laws that were passed during a special session.

Data prior to 2005 is posted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files. To view PDF files, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader . Adobe also provides free accessibility tools for screen reader access.
