Mandated Reports

Search mandated reports database

This database allows for searching of mandated reports that the Library is expecting or has received since 2003 (Selected mandates prior to 2003 are included). Multiple search fields allow for the creation of custom lists.

Each legislative session, the Legislature mandates reports and studies to be completed by state agencies or other governmental entities. Mandates are for either one-time studies or ongoing reports. Library staff read the session laws to identify new mandates and changes to existing mandates. These mandates are tracked and the library obtains copies of the reports for our collection in order to provide long-term access.

Search mandated reports in the LRL catalog

Only reports the Legislative Library has received and processed will be in the Library's catalog. If you cannot locate the report you need, please contact a librarian to check on the status of the report.

If you know the title, mandate number (law or statute citation), some keywords, or the issuing agency, you can use the Library's Catalog to locate mandated reports.

Any available electronic versions of the mandated reports will be linked to in the catalog record.

Minnesota Statute Mandate Search: To search for Minnesota Statute 216C.43 subdivision 12, type 216C.43 12 in the search box.

Minnesota Law Mandate Search: To search for the "Ignition Interlock Device Pilot Project Final Report" mandated by Minnesota Laws of 2007, Chapter 54, Article 3, Section 5, Subdivision 1, enter as much of the law citation as you know in the search box, such as: 2007 54 3 5 1 (using numbers only, separated by spaces, works the best)
