The Law Librarians' Society of Washington, D.C., Inc. (LLSDC) is pleased to
announce the availability of a new site on its Legislative Source Book
entitled "Legislative Histories of Selected U.S. Laws in Electronic Format"
(http://www.llsdc.org/sourcebook/leg-hist.htm). The selected laws are
organized in alphabetical and public law number order and primarily come
from (and are linked to) the Department of Commerce (DoC) Law Library
online catalog (pin is any characters you chose). The site also contains
many explanatory notes while each law contains links to related bill
information on the Library of Congress (LoC) THOMAS site, to a current
related U.S. Code site, and to a current related C.F.R. site.

The public law legislative histories include Antidumping Act of 1921, the
Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, the
Copyright Law Revision of 1976, the Export Administration acts of 1965,
1972 and 1979, the Government in the Sunshine Act of 1976, and other laws.
In the future it is hoped that other agencies and firms will add to this
collection.

The site joins many other titles on LLSDC's Legislative Source Book
(http://www.llsdc.org/sourcebook/), many of which have been recently
updated.
