Research and Legislation

Research and Legislation is the section of the nonpartisan Legislative Services Office that conducts research for legislators, drafts legislation, staffs legislative study committees, reviews administrative agency rules, and provides information on the legislative process and legislative history to the public and other state agencies. In addition to processing legislation, the staff tracks and publishes records of all action taken on introduced bills. After each session of the Legislature adjourns, staff prepares Session Laws for publication and proofs the ensuing Idaho Code Supplements for accuracy. The staff librarian maintains an extensive collection of materials in the Legislative Reference Library to assist both legislators and staff with research.
