Legislative Intent News & Notes

Some bill research does not include the Governor's file because at the time we researched the bill, the sitting Governor had not released his chaptered bill file. If the Governor's file is not included with this particular research, please contact our office (1-800-666-1917 or quote@legintent.com) and we will be happy to provide this file at no charge if it is available. Please Note: Governor files did not exist prior to 1943.

We look forward to meeting your legislative and administrative history research needs in 2017.  Every law has a history, an intended purpose with ideas proposed and compromises negotiated.  This history is often buried in committee files, the author’s file and the governor’s files that are only available in hard copy.  Our mission is to help you get a complete picture of the legislative history.

Since 1974, we have helped litigators, researchers, legal professionals and judges find these pieces of the truth to reveal the factual reality that has led to winning their cases and understanding their area of practice.

LIS’ office as well as most of the state libraries and Capital offices will be closed on Monday, December 26, 2016 and Monday, January 2, 2017.  As a result, all fast turnaround research time frames that are ordered around these dates will be moved over by one to two days, depending on the Capitol and library closure schedules. We will also have a reduced staff on Tuesday, December 27, 2015, but we should still be able to assist with most client requests.    

Reminder: for those of you working over the holidays, our online store is open 24/7!

Fast away the old year passes:  It’s been a wonderful year for us at LIS.  We welcomed attorney, Annamaria Bareczky-Anderson, and researcher Mitch Shabazian to our team. 

In addition, we won the American Bar Association’s annual Peeps in Law competition, thanks to our researcher, Ian Midiere, who has since left LIS to take on the bigger challenge of law school at the University of California, Davis.

Lastly, we enjoyed meeting those of you who attended law librarian conferences and talking with the many of you who called us for legislative and administrative research.

~~~ We’re grateful for you! ~~~
