    Legislative history traces the legislative process of a particular bill (about Testimony and other subjects) for the main purpose of determining the legislators’ intent behind the enactment of a law to explain or clarify ambiguities in the language or the perceived meaning of that law (about Testimony or other topics), or locating the current status of a bill and monitoring its progress.

    State regulations are rules and procedures promulgated by state agencies (which may apply to Testimony and other topics); they are a binding source of law. In addition to promulgating regulations, state administrative boards and agencies often have judicial or quasi-judicial authority and may issue administrative decisions affecting Testimony. Finding these decisions can be challenging. In many cases, researchers about Testimony should check state agency web sites for their regulations, decisions, forms, and other information of interest.
