The Legislative Library and Information Resources

As a subdivision of LAD, the Legislative Library supports the research and information needs of the General Assembly in serving partisan and non-partisan staff. The library can assist legislators and the public with information on the status of legislation from the current and past sessions. In addition, the library offers limited reference services to the general public, primarily with regard to copies of study reports and access to the General Assembly’s web-based information. The library staff does not compile legislative histories, but will provide on-site assistance to anyone interested in researching committee minutes and other primary legislative materials.

The Legislative Library is open from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday and during session, Monday evenings until adjournment.


Working alongside LAD, the General Assembly is also supported by two other divisions that assist legislators in the lawmaking process.

Fiscal Research Division (FRD)
Need a fiscal note for a bill or a copy of the current budget? The Fiscal Research Division works directly with appropriations and budget staff to provide budget analysis and revenue forecasting. Click the link above for more information about the division and staff.

Legislative Drafting Division (LDD) 
Need help crafting a bill to introduce? Bill drafters in LDD, formerly known as Bill Drafting, provide the expertise to draft new legislation that kickstarts the enactment process.
