Compiled Legislative Histories

Federal legislative history refers to the documents produced by Congress as a bill is introduced, studied and debated.  Thus, a legislative history is an attempt to determine the intent of the legislature.  The intent of the legislature is one of the arguments you can use when arguing how a ambiguous statute should be interpreted. 

Below is a list of compiled legislative histories.  If you don't see the one your looking for, check out our guide on Federal Legislative Histories which will provide all the tools necessary to find the information you need.  If you are trying to compile an Ohio legislative history, check out our guide on Ohio Legal Research.
