Legislative materials are addressed in Rule 13 (beginning at page 135).
While most of this rule deals with citing sources from the U.S. Congress, look for subsections dealing with comparable state sources, including:
bills and resolutions--Rule 13.2(c) at pp. 136-37
hearings--Rule 13.3(b), at p. 138
Internet sources--Rule 13.7(b), at p. 141
The rule governing debates only covers the federal Congressional Record and its predecessors. But debates held in the Washington House or Senate may be important.Refer to Rule 18, The Internet, Electronic Media, and Other Nonprint Resources, pp. 178-89.
Does not address exceptions from the The Bluebook for legislative material. Prefers several abbreviations that differ, including the RCW and corresponding commercial versions, and the Laws of Washington.
