In the last ten years there has been a significant expansion of background material on California legislation. The Journal includes this article to apprise the practitioner of the material available to him in his attempt to find and establish legislative intent. The author lists the official and unofficial reports, hearings, studies and journals which can serve as extrinsic aids to the court in construing legislative enactments. The author briefly discusses the type of information found in the enumerated reports, hearings and studies. Also included is a list of the indexes which will enable the researcher to locate the material available on a specific subject or statute. Finally, the author discusses the procedure to be utilized for researching legislative intent. An appendix is added which lists and numbers the material as it is discussed in the text.
