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.

No person may alter, change, remodel, partition, cover, or conceal an historic area which is a part of the state capitol building. In addition, no person may deny access to an historic area traditionally open to the public by creating physical barriers to access by the public except as may be necessary for public health, safety, or the safety of the property, or for the orderly conduct of state business, without the approval of the commission. However, the commissioner of administration temporarily may deny access to any area by the public or create temporary barriers for a period up to ninety days if, in the commissioner's judgment, it is necessary to do so for the public health, safety, or the safety of the property, or to permit the orderly conduct of state business.
