PROJECT NARRATIVE

PENNSYLVANIA SESSION LAWS

The Legislative Reference Bureau, an agency of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, has undertaken a long-term preservation and public access project to digitize the laws enacted for the Province and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and published on a periodic basis from 1682 to the most recently completed session of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, referred to for purposes of the project as "session laws."

The project plan provides for incremental availability of the session laws. The first collection, the Statutes at Large, has been completed. The 18 volumes in this collection contain public and private laws of the Province and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through the early nineteenth century. The second collection, the Smith's Laws, and the third collection, the Pamphlet Laws, are in varying stages of completion.

Session laws are displayed as originally enacted and do not reflect subsequent amendments, repeals or other modification. Text is in Portable Document Format, and a browser plug-in is required to view the documents. Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free plug-in which may be downloaded from Adobe Systems Incorporated.
