Periodically during each legislative session of the General Assembly, as measures are considered and passed by both chambers, the staff of the Local Government Commission timely prepares and distributes a "Summary of Acts and Miscellaneous Actions" to the Members of the General Assembly. Summaries from 1993 to the present are available through this webpage.
Please be advised, however, that the summaries are for information purposes only. They are not an official compilation or restatement of the complete contents of the acts or actions summarized. Nothing in the list should be construed as a legal opinion concerning the content or meaning of the acts or actions. Should questions arise regarding the content or meaning of summaries, we advocate making reference to the official act text and seeking the advice of legal counsel.
