Current Summary of Changes to the Coded Law File

Law File Changes - May 07, 2013

Note:  Laws added to the file since the last posting on April 25, 2013 begin with relative address/law ordinal 8273. Be aware, however, that changes/corrections have been made to existing laws. A summary is shown below, but may not be complete. We recommend that you overwrite the existing law file with the new one. 

With this new posting, a new file format is available to replace the legacy mainframe flat file.  The content, however, is based on our Oracle table as the mainframe law table no longer exists due to the decommissioning of our mainframe.
