Where can I find state legislative materials, such as hearings, reports, and debates?

Unlike state session laws, of which the Law Library has a comprehensive collection in microform and the HeinOnline subscription database, the Library of Congress’s holdings of state legislative materials are not complete. To determine if materials for a particular state are available, search the Library of Congress online catalog using the name of the state legislative body. The state legislative journals collected by the Library of Congress are usually shelved with political science materials in the Library of Congress’s general collection, rather than in the Law Library.
