The Laws of Pennsylvania contain laws enacted as amendments to the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes,
the official statutory codification established by the General Assembly under
the act of November 25, 1970 (P.L.707, No.230).
These laws have been incorporated into a separate official publication since 1975.
The Laws of Pennsylvania, also referred to as the Pamphlet Laws, have been recognized as official law
since December 1, 1801. Acts are numbered by the Department of State and published by the Legislative
Reference Bureau as separate official documents known as slip laws before publication in bound
editions as the Laws of Pennsylvania. NOTE: Amendatory acts prior to 1990 are not available.
