Begin with the statute to be searched
Select “Reports and Related Materials” under “Legislative History”
Check "Citing References"
Legislative history for laws enacted 2000 to date (from 44th Legislature 2nd Regular Session) is available on Westlaw. In addition to Bill Summaries and Bill Status Reports, there are House and Senate Committee Minutes, and Fact Sheets that accompany the engrossed bill sent to the Governor for signature.
One advantage to using Westlaw for locating legislative history information is that only relevant portions of Committee minutes pertaining to a particular bill are displayed, as opposed to complete minutes on the legislature’s website. Checking “Citing References” for a statute can provide secondary sources quickly, such as law review and journal articles, and links to case law are handy.
One disadvantage is that important relevant materials may be overlooked by Westlaw editors, and not be included. Attachments of materials and Special Reports are not included (available in print from the House and Senate offices). For thoroughness, conduct a search on the legislature’s website, also
