Purdon's Chronological Table of Pennsylvania Laws

When you see a reference to "Act 47 of 1987" can you easily find the current version as incorporated in the statutory code? Just look in Purdon's Chronological Table of Pennsylvania Laws.

One of the many additional features of Purdon's Pennsylvania Statutes and Consolidated Statutes Annotated, the Chronological Table of Pennsylvania Laws is contained in three volumes shelved with the General Index volumes.

Look up your session law by date and P.L. or Act number (if the session law is from before 1968, look up by date and P.L. number.) Each section listed will have a corresponding citation in Purdon's Pennsylvania Statutes and Consolidated Statutes Annotated.
