One of the questions we frequently get at the University of Washington Gallagher Law Library is how to do legislative history research. Perhaps it’s because this kind of research can seem intimidating and confusing, especially if you are a little rusty about how the legislative process works (more on this later). This is where a good research guide (and skilled librarians) can help. As it happens, at the Gallagher Law Library we have an excellent guide about Washington legislative history ( law/waleghis) that breaks down the research process, helps you focus your attention on the right resources, and makes your use of fee-based research databases more efficient. And that’s just one of the guides we make available.
