Information About The Advance Publication of Current Acts and Resolves
Advance publication of laws and resolves enacted during a current legislative session is required under M.G.L. c. 5, s. 3. The Secretary of the Commonwealth publishes these session laws immediately after enactment and distributes "pamplet" editions of the advance copies during the legislative session. Single copies of laws are available at the State Bookstore and at the Western Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Bound editions of all the laws enacted during each session are published a few months after the session has ended. A one year subscription costs $75.00.
