In our continued exploration of the Oregon Legislature, in particular the information on their website, don’t forget the Committee Services webpages. Click on Committee Services Publications for, among other things, previous session summaries. You can find full session publications or view these reports section by section, e.g. 2008 Judiciary.
These and other useful publications are from the Legislative Administration Services Committee Office. (I last blogged about them when reporting on the demise of the legislative minutes.)
Lawyers, and their clients, and law librarians, live in the present, future, and especially in the past – seriously. There is a reason we need to keep superseded laws, regulations, and rules in our libraries, many of which are “out of print” and not online, so we are thrilled to see “retrospective conversion” digitization projects going on.
