Series 1 Bill Files 1964-2006

Physical Description: 1734 file folders

Arrangement

Bill files are arranged chronologically by legislative session, then numerically by bill number within each legislative house.

Scope and Content Note

These bill files created by the Senate Education Committee may include all or some of the following items: bill analyses, amendments and resolutions, author's statements, testimony, press releases, newspaper clippings, background information, correspondence, roll calls, records of votes, and committee statements. Because of the size and complexity of education in California, the range of topics included in bills assigned to the Senate Education Committee varies greatly. Some topics of particular interest and reoccurrence in recent years include hate crime reduction in schools, school district bailouts and reorganization, and school finance.
Microfilm copies of bill files are available for the years 1964-1990 where indicated with MF before the LP number. Researchers should use the microfilm copies.
