The Legislative Archive System provides electronic access to scanned copies of the official bill files from the collections of the Legislative Reference Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The files are scanned and made available as PDF documents. The system also allows users to search for legislation across multiple legislative sessions.

The bill file scanning and annotation process is ongoing. Bill files are viewable as soon as they are scanned and may be looked up by bill number. Scanned bill files are currently available for the 46th through 79th Legislatures.

Searches by captions, authors, subjects, and actions are not available for all sessions. See the Legislative Archive System Status Chart for details.
