Locating Historical Legislation

Use this database to search for Connecticut legislation by bill or act number, year, title keyword, and committee. Current records include bills, resolutions, joint resolutions, and petitions introduced between 1913 and 1988. As more of our records are digitized, this database will expand to include additional information about each bill.
