Finding the citations for a popular act

State & Federal Acts -- If you don't know whether a named law is state or federal, consult:

  • Shepard's Acts and Cases By Popular Names, Federal & State
    • Reference KF 80 .S5
    • "A compilation of popular names by which federal and state acts and cases have been referred to or cited together with an identification of each act in terms of its constitutional or statutory references"

Official names of Florida laws can also be found by looking in the index of the Florida Statutes under the heading "Short Titles".
