AGENCY: Legislature

SERIES: 83155
TITLE: Laws of Utah
DATES: i 1851-
ARRANGEMENT: Chronological by year of publication.

DESCRIPTION: These volumes publish the laws passed in each respective legislative session. Volumes were created after each regular and special session of the state legislature or the territorial assembly. Until 1972 these laws were not considered binding until publication. Laws were passed in three types of sessions: regular legislative session records; special sessions which resolve immediate concerns before the next regular session; and budget session records (1968-1985). A listing of individual members of the legislature and their districts has been included since statehood, but recent volumes include more details about them such as party affiliation and committee assignments. Listings of major state administrative and judicial officials began in 1901. Any record, regardless of format, that is issued by a governmental entity for public distribution at the total or partial expense of that governmental entity. See Utah Code Section 9-7-101 8(a)(b) (2010) and 9-7-208 (2006)
