The Montana Historical Society is taking steps to protect the health and safety of our staff during the COVID-19 outbreak and staff are working remotely until further notice. While we recognize the importance of your research requests, our response to them will be delayed. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
Our staff will research legislative questions. All legislative research requests are $25 USD. In your request, please clearly define the specific information you want us to look for (i.e. Montana Code Annotated citation or bill number) and the sources you would like us to search. Vague or poorly defined requests cannot be researched and will be returned.
Important The Montana Legislature's web site has digital audio recordings, scanned minutes and minute logs, and scanned exhibits for committee hearings from 1999‑present. Please visit their site at https://leg.mt.gov/committees/session-committees/.
For instruction on how to complete a legislative history as well as guidance on the relevant materials in our collections, please consult our Legislative History Guide or contact us at (406) 444-2681.
