Public Law news
There was an interesting exchange on the law librarian listserv yesterday. Someone was researching a federal bill that was just signed into law and wanted to know where it was going to be codified so he could cite it. A response came from Bryan Carson that provided a link to an OFR listserv that will automatically let you know when a law has been passed with the Bill number, Public Law Number, Name of Act, Approval date, and the U.S. Statutes at Large page citation. It usually takes about a week or so for the law to make it from the President's pen to the OFR listserv announcement.
