The Legislative Research Library is part of the Idaho Legislative Services Office, Research and Legislation Division. We are non-partisan legislative support staff for the Idaho Legislature, and provide research and bill drafting services for Idaho state legislators. The library is also the repository for legislative history records of Idaho laws. We are open to the public, so anyone may come in and research the history behind an Idaho law. You do not need to make an appointment.
We have prepared several guides to help you in researching legislative history. Depending on how old the law is, you may or may not be able to find any discussion on it, and you may or may not be able to find the discussion online. These guides help explain what is available in further detail.
