1999 Session – Legislative history documents

A legislative history includes the following documents: bill history page; bill reprints and amendments; minutes and exhibits from committee hearings; floor votes and bill actions as noted in the Assembly and Senate Journals. All materials, with the exception of the exhibits, are available through the website for 1999 legislation.

The bill history page tracks the bill chronologically through the legislative process and links to committee hearings[1], bills and amendments[2], Journal pages, and floor votes. To find the bill history page for a particular piece of legislation, use the bill history search[3]. Choose the type of legislation -- Senate Bill, Assembly Concurrent Resolution, etc. -- and enter the bill number.

Using the bill history page as the guide, assemble in chronological order the bill prints, committee minutes and Journal entries.

Exhibits referred to in 1999 committee minutes are not available electronically. Request exhibits from the Research Library, 775-684-6827 or by email, or view the exhibits on microfiche at selected Nevada libraries.[4] When requesting exhibits from the Research Library, cite house, committee, hearing date, bill number, and exhibit letter. Photocopy charges apply.

To view the Assembly or Senate Journal pages for floor actions, note the dates from the bill history page, and return to the session information screen to choose the Journal link. Open the Assembly or Senate date as needed. Use the browser’s Edit/Find feature and enter the bill number.
