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.

A competent adult may at any time execute a declaration governing the withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment. The declaration shall be signed by the declarant, or another at the declarant's direction, and witnessed by two adult individuals. The signing may be in the presence of a notary public who shall thereafter notarize the declaration. A declaration shall state the declarant's preferences regarding whether the declarant wishes to receive or not receive artificial nutrition and hydration. If the declaration does not state the declarant's preferences with respect to artificial nutrition and hydration, whether artificial nutrition and hydration is to be provided, withheld, or withdrawn shall be governed by the law of this state which would apply in the absence of a declaration.
