These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series contains unofficial copies of the text of legislative bills the Archives has collected over the years. Generally these are copies produced and distributed to the public by the legislature so individuals can monitor the introduction or see the final version of a given bill. They were gathered by the reference section of the Archives and maintained for research convenience until the transfer of the record copies of the bills.

The term "bills," in the broad sense, refers to bills, resolutions, memorials, etc. In the specific sense, a bill is material a legislator wishes to have made into a law. Memorials and resolutions are position statements which do not have the weight of law, but are acted on in the same manner. A bill may be renumbered and/or undergo a number of rewrites during its course in the legislature; with the exception of an occasional substitute bill, those changes are not recorded here. Neither does this series include the signature sheets nor the critical backing sheets which log the bill's progress through committees, amendments, and votes.

Bills are abbreviated in the container list, with the first letter indicating chamber of origin: House and Senate bills (HB and SB); concurrent memorials (HCM or SCM); joint memorials (HJM or SJM); concurrent resolutions (HCR or SCR); enabling resolutions, which permit the introduction of non-budget matters during a budget session (HER or SER); and joint resolutions (HJR or SJR). Sometimes final status sheets from the session have been filmed along with the bills. This provides a list of bill numbers, titles, sponsors, and status which may be of use. This series contains all the bills collected by the Archives through 1986. By the mid-1980s, the BILL DRAFTING AND RESEARCH RECORDS, Series 7073, created by Legislative Research and General Counsel are relatively complete and contain bill drafts as well as additional background material.

Arrangement

Arrangement is chronological by year, except for 1985 and 1986 which are mixed; thereunder, grouped by legislative session and originating chamber. Sessions from the same year may not fall chronologically. Bills may be split as introduced vs. final or intermingled. Bill types are grouped together, with the periodic exception of enabling resolutions, but are not in consistent order. Within bill type, the bills are usually, but not always numerically arranged.

Research Note

As this is not a record copy of the legislative bills, use of this series necessarily provides an incomplete and sometimes inaccurate representation of the bill and the legislative process. However, this series may be useful in obtaining text for a bill, at some stage in its life cycle, if the record copy of the bill is missing. First consult the appropriate related series. If the bill is missing from series 432 or 428, it may have been renumbered, for example a bill which became a resolution; the House Journals or Senate Journals will note renumberings. If the journals do not indicate a renumbering, this series may be of use in completing the gaps.

Gaps in Series

Gaps in this series are too numerous to itemize. Filming through 1986 represents all that the Archives collected, but the collection did not always include all bills produced, and missing bills are too frequent to list.

Processing Note

Microfilming was begun in the 1960s of all the duplicates gathered. The completeness of the Bill Drafting and Research Records by the mid-1980s rendered this series redundant and it was no longer maintained. The series was processed by A.C. Cone in 1993.
