Pennsylvania Legislative Histories

The Pennsylvania Legislative Histories database contains librarian-compiled legislative histories in PDF format. The information was obtained from the Legislative Journals of the House and Senate, the source for debates/remarks made in the General Assembly. Committee Reports, Committee Hearings, Joint State Government Commission Reports and the text of PA Bills and Acts are not included in the histories.

These documents have not been edited for scanning inaccuracies.


Histories for many, but not all, bills beginning in the early 1800’s through the present.
