Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

How do I find bills on a particular subject that were passed in a previous session?

Information about bills from 1995 to the present are available on the Legislature's Bills web page. The Senate Information Office and the House Index office (651-296-6646) can answer this question. It is sometimes more convenient to check the House or Senate Journals and index directly for bill introductions, and Session Laws and index for laws passed. The index section of the permanent Journal for a particular session contains a numerical list of Senate bills and House bills which show official titles, Journal page references, and chapter numbers for all bills passed by the Senate and the House. There is also a subject index with cross references, an author index, and a companion bill list.
