LAWS Demonstrations: 2013 Legislative Session


Posted Date: 
November 21, 2012

Over the next three months, the Legislative Services Division will offer several demonstrations of the Legislative Automated Workflow System, or LAWS. This online system allows the public and state agencies to track legislation during the 2013 legislative session.

LAWS also provides timely information before, during, and after a session, including up-to-date bill status, bill text, hearing schedules, agendas, journals, legislator information, and more. LAWS users also may set up accounts that allow them to follow specific bills as legislation makes its way through the process.

Demonstrations of the system are scheduled for:

  • Friday, Nov. 30, at 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.;
  • Thursday, Dec. 6, at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.; and
  • Thursday, Jan. 3, at 10 a.m.

All sessions will be held in Room 102 of the Capitol and are open to the public. Identical information is presented at all demonstrations. Each will last two to two-and-a-half hours. Registration is not required.

The LAWS website for the 2013 session can be found at www.leg.mt.gov/laws.htm; it can also be accessed from the legislative branch homepage, www.leg.mt.gov.
