Legislative Hotline Directory

Listed here are the telephone numbers to call for legislative bill status information in each of the fifty states. In-state, toll free 800 numbers are also listed for those states that have them. Toll-free numbers are generally active only during legislative sessions.

In North Dakota, bill status numbers change from session to session, so the number provided is the state switchboard, which can provide bill status numbers used during a session.

The Legislative Hotline Directory is excerpted from a larger publication, the State Legislative Sourcebook, also published by Government Research Service.
