FLORIDA SESSION LAW COMPILATIONS
(under development)

In some thirty years of providing Florida legislative history and intent research services to legal professionals we have collected Florida legislative history documentation on multiple Florida Statutes (FS) sections from 1969 to date. The Florida Statutes (FS) are created and amended by individual Florida session laws (Laws of Florida).  For many of these laws we have prepared law compilations of documents that we now making available on a per law basis. Each compilation listed here is as complete as possible. These compilations always include official bill histories, committee staff analyses, Senate and House Journals and final law text.  Additionally we also include, where available, committee and task force reports, correspondence, voting records,  special interest reports and position papers, and other documentation we have located and deemed relevant. All compilations are in PDF file format and are bookmarked to aid the user. We also have available compilations of Legislative Committee Staff Analyses, 1988-1996 and full session law compilations for all passed laws, 1997-2001. Go to the Legislative History Documentation Series page for more information and samples of compiled laws.

This list is in the process of development and more session law listings will be added over time.
