Legislative Affairs Division 1991-2002 [series] (39.3 linear feet)

The records of the "Legislative Affairs Division" demonstrate the executive branch's impact on the legislative history of Michigan's laws. Files are arranged by Public Act number, which is also a chronological ordering by the governor's signing date. After the governor signs a new act, the law will be inserted into the state's legal code Michigan Compiled Laws, and will usually be thereafter referred to by its MCL number. Usually, therefore, a researcher seeking a legislative history of a particular law would locate the statute within Michigan Compiled Laws to find the cross reference to its Public Act number. Accessing the original Public Act will show what the law looked like when it was enacted (and not as eventually amended.) The website for the Michigan Legislature presents the text of Public Acts since 1997 (http://www.michiganlegislature.org/mileg.asp?page=PublicActs.)

This expandable file contains Engler's handwritten comments on the process of making particular laws--suggesting exchanges and compromises and delineating the issues on which he would refuse to concede. It includes Engler's handwritten editions of the Public Airport Authority Act (2002) and the Distressed Communities Economic Development Authority Act (2002).
