I'm having trouble opening/printing/searching one of the PDF legislative histories.  What can I do?

  • Find out if Adobe Reader has been loaded on your computer.  If not, you can download the latest version for free from Adobe's website.  If you already have the Reader, make sure you have an up-to-date version.

  • These histories are provided in PDF format. All histories for bills prior to the 2003 session are saved as graphics and not as text; therefore, the "Find" feature in Adobe Acrobat (the binoculars button) will not work with them. Beginning with 2003, all parts of the histories except the exhibits are searchable using the "Find" feature in Adobe Acrobat.

  • Some of the PDF files are quite large, and can take some time to open.  Depending on your Internet connection, it may be quicker to save the file to your computer and then open and print from there.  If you are using Internet Explorer, right-click on the URL.  On the menu that pops up, click on "Save Target As..."  Choose where you want to save the file and click on "Save."

  • Contact the Research Library for technical assistance or to order a printed copy of the history.  Photocopy charges will apply.
