State Legislative Materials

House or Senate Bill

In Pennsylvania bills are numbered sequentially through the two-year term. Each bill may have three different sets of numbers assigned to it: bill number, printer’s number and, if an act becomes law, an Act Number. Bills are numbered in the order in which they are introduced into the respective legislative chamber. Printer’s numbers (which appear at the upper right of the first page) enable you to keep track of the different versions of a bill as it works through the legislative process. The highest printer’s number will be the most current version of a bill. Acts are numbered chronologically in the order in which they are passed.




Standard format:

Title of bill, S. or H.B., depending on the chamber, bill number, printer’s number, session.




Example:

An Act prohibiting the use of illegal immigrant labor on projects; imposing powers and duties on executive agencies of the Commonwealth; and providing for remedies. HB 2319 Pr. No 4043 The General Assembly of Pennsylvania Session of 2006, Regular Session.
