Pennsylvania Statutory Research: PA Statutory Codification

This guide reviews the history and current status of the Pennsylvania statutory codification project, and lists electronic and print options for Pennsylvania statutory research.


In 1970, Pennsylvania started a statutory recodification project. This project will continue indefinitely. Until the project is complete, researchers looking for Pennsylvania statutes will need to search both Pennsylvania statutory codes: the Pennsylvania Statutes and the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes.

This section of the research guide provides both a short explanation and a long explanation of the Pennsylvania statutory codification project. Use the pull down menu above to access both explanations.
