Suggested State Legislation - Council of State Governments

Suggested State Legislation (SSL) is a series of compilations of draft legislation about topics of current importance to states. The Council of State Governments publishes SSL drafts in annual SSL volumes.  As stated on the SSL website CSG does "not seek to influence the enactment of state legislation, but to compile draft legislation so states can learn from the experience of others."
