The Archives charges a fee for conducting legislative research for mail and phone researchers. Patrons requiring faster service may visit the Archives in person to examine relevant records, or may hire a private research firm.
Legislative records for the current and immediately preceding legislative sessions are not maintained at the State Archives. Records are kept by the individual committees for one or more years, with some committees retaining their records for as long as three or four years. The records are subsequently sent to the State Archives, where they are permanently preserved.
