    Acquisition History

    The State Archives received these records in accordance with California Government Code 9080(b) which requires legislative committees to transfer their records to the State Archives when they are no longer needed by the committee.

    Committee History

    The Office of Senate Floor Analyses was created in the 1985 legislative session by Senate Resolution 15. Prior to 1985, Senate Rule 29.8 required both the Majority and Minority Caucuses to analyze each bill prior to it being placed on the desk of each Senator. No amendment was to be considered until it also was analyzed by both caucuses. After Senate Resolution 15 was signed, Senate Rule 29.8 transferred those duties from the caucuses to the newly created Office of Senate Floor Analyses. The Office of Senate Floor Analyses still stands with the same duties today.

    Scope and Content

    This record group consists of 315 cubic feet of Bill Files from the Senate Rules Committee, Office of Senate Floor Analyses. The bill files may contain several drafts of floor analyses from either the Senate Rules Committee or various other committees along with amendments, and, on occasion, correspondence and background information. These records may be beneficial for researchers as they contain analyses on nearly every bill heard in each session. It is also anticipated that the Archives will receive further records from the Senate Rules Committee, Office of Senate Floor Analyses. Researchers should check for recently received, unprocessed records of the committee.

    Accruals

    Further accruals are expected.
