About the United States Statutes at Large

Comprising of proclamations by the President, concurrent resolutions, and proposed and ratified constitutional amendments, the United States Statutes at Large is the official source for all laws and resolutions enacted by Congress. Public and private laws passed in the Congressional Court are published and placed in order by the date they were enacted into law. At the end of each Congressional session, the laws and resolutions passed during that session are gathered into “session law” publications. The session law publication for United States federal statutes is known as the U.S. Statutes at Large.

HeinOnline offers a true-to-print digitized version of the entire Statutes at Large from 1789 to date, plus links to laws not yet published by the GPO, select Indian and other treaties, early federal code and compilations of statutes, and other related works.
