Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

The sections, clauses, sentences, and parts of this chapter are severable, are not matters of mutual essential inducement, and any of them may be excised by any court of competent jurisdiction if this chapter would otherwise be unconstitutional or ineffective. It is the intention of this chapter to confer upon the authority the whole or any part of the powers in this chapter provided for, and if any one or more sections, clauses, sentences, and parts of this chapter are for any reason questioned in any court of competent jurisdiction and are adjudged unconstitutional or invalid, the judgment does not affect, impair, or invalidate the remaining provisions thereof, but is confined in its operation to the specific provision or provisions so held unconstitutional or invalid, and the inapplicability or invalidity of any section, clause, sentence, or part of this chapter in any one or more instances does not affect or prejudice its applicability or validity in any other instance.
