Laws passed by the Michigan legislature can be found both online and in the Law Library's print collection.
Annotated versions of the M.C.L. are also available on Westlaw and Lexis.
Historical versions of statutes, session laws, bill analyses, and House and Senate journals from past sessions are available through LLMC Digital. Years of coverage vary depending on type of document.
Legislative history documents include prior versions of bills and statutes, bill analyses, committee hearings and reports, House and Senate journals, and House and Senate floor debates. Unlike federal legislative history, compiling state legislative histories can be more difficult as these types of documents are usually not consistently maintained or stored in any one place.
For more information on conducting legislative history research in Michigan, please see the Michigan Legislative History research guide.
House and Senate Journals
Proceedings of the Michigan Senate and House are recorded and published in journals published by session. Journals are available both online and in the Law Library's print collection.
The State Archives of Michigan has an extensive legislative collection in print and via digital collections.
