LEGISLATIVE INFORMATION AND BILL ROOM

The Legislative Information and Bill Room (LIBR) provides information to legislators, legislative staff, governmental agencies, the news media and the public. Common queries pertain to legislative action, legislative meeting schedules, contact information and explanations of legislative procedures. The office also refers inquiries to State, local and federal agencies where appropriate. The toll-free number is 800-792-8630 (for in-state calls only). For Hearing Impaired users, dial 711 for NJ Relay. The LIBR can also be reached at (609) 847-3905.

The LIBR prepares the Legislative Calendar, which includes announcements of the date, time and location for Senate and General Assembly sessions; meetings of standing reference committees and legislative commissions; and public hearings. Session information also includes agendas and board lists. The office also produces the Legislative Digest the day after each session of either House, which provides up-to-date information on legislative activity, including various categories of bill status such as bills introduced, bills passed, bills amended by committee and bills signed into law since the last session.

The LIBR staff maintains bill status tracking and keeps records of floor voting and committee action. They distribute copies of Executive Orders, veto messages, committee membership and leadership listings, and all publications produced by the Office of Legislative Services. The LIBR prints and distributes copies of bills, resolutions, committee statements, fiscal notes and recently enacted chapter laws. They also provide public hearing transcripts; copies of the Journal of the Senate, Minutes of the General Assembly, and Laws of New Jersey; and maps of New Jersey's legislative and congressional districts; as well as the following:
