LRI History LLC (LRI) has specialized in providing in-depth research on the history and intent of legislative and constitutional enactments at the federal, state, and local levels since 1983. The courts routinely treat our research reports the same way they treat case authority for construing legislative intent (see CCP § 1859).
LRI is known for providing thorough, relevant, and targeted research at competitive rates. Complimentary consultations to narrow the scope and cost of your project are de rigueur with us. One appreciative, seasoned attorney summed it up when he said “this is obviously more than a business for you.” We invite you to find out for yourself.
The legislative history of a California statute is comprised of individual bill files, such as policy committee bill files, fiscal bill files, Governor’s bill files, etc. These individual bill files are then combined to create one legislative history report. So when we speak of files, we are referring to these individual bill files. Please note that some research falls into specialized categories, so the information below will not apply in all cases.
You can download directly from our Online Store for California legislative history. These reports contain only those bill files we already have in-house, so it may not be all of them, but it is a great starting point for gaining an understanding the Legislature’s intent. Each report will be available for immediate download, and will cost $275.
With our Core reports, you will receive all available bill files for the main bill. There will only be minimal organization within each file, but the report does include a signed authentication and a basic table of contents. Rates will vary depending on how quickly you need the research completed.
Custom reports will include all available bill files for the main bill, as well as any additional background research that may be cited, such as failed legislation, interim hearings, studies, etc. There will be extensive organization and a detailed table of contents, as well as a signed authentication. Rates will vary depending on how quickly you need the research completed.
