Every state organizes their legislative information independently and distributes their information via their state's official websites. For this reason, researchers have to examine each state individually. For California, the official California legislative information can be found in the link below:

Established in 1850, the California State Library is the oldest continuously operated public library in the American West and is the central reference and research library for state government and the Legislature. The library collection includes books, journals, maps, and photographs. It has an extensive collection of documents from and about the state’s rich history and is one of the major genealogical reference libraries on the West Coast.
