The General Assembly submitted these records to the Office of the Secretary of the State, which subsequently transferred them to the Connecticut State Library.
RG 002:014, Rejected Bills, 1808-1870 (pdf) was processed and a finding aid was published in 1999. As a result, the box numbers are no longer consecutive. The last box processed for 1870 is 56. The first box for 1871 is box 45. When the remainder of the rejected bills are processed the box numbers will be changed.
Starting in 1913, rejected bills have not been processed and put into a separate series. They can be located within RG 002:004, General Assembly Papers, 1871-2010.
