Social Work: Finding Legislative and Policy Information

Federal and State Legislation

Finding policies and policy information is challenging. Even using Google for these public documents is not always easy. For federal laws and policies, start with Congress.gov. 

For Pennsylvania state laws and policies, search Pennsylvania General Assembly (below) or do a Google search.  When using Google, include the topic, the state "Pennsylvania" then limit your search to .gov or .org websites.  For example: "mental health offenders Pennsylvania site:.gov"
