Locate the Assembly File Analyses
Assembly File Analyses: These analyses were prepared by the Assembly Office of Research for both Senate and Assembly Bills through the 1997/98 legislative session (after which the office was closed). Each analysis includes information on committee actions, the proposed fiscal effect of the bill, a short digest, a summary of comments by committee consultants, and an assessment of the effect of the bill. They are available from 1975 through 2002 in the Micrographics Room (KFC20.A7 / cabinet #22). They are arranged by year and bill number.
