Journals are available from January 24, 2001 to the present. We have made reasonable efforts to assure the accuracy of the data, but this is NOT the official version of the House Journal. These files have not been proofread against the events of the session. All information obtained from this source should be checked against a printed copy of the official version of the House Journal.

Under normal circumstances, we hope to have the journal available and online the day after a session.

All Roll Call Votes are in PDF format. Please put in the number you are looking for
and add the roll call # to the zeroes in the form to make a
five digit number (i.e., 00123)
This will return the available PDF document for viewing.
