The annual Advance Sheets of the General Laws of Mississippi are part of the supplementation service for your official Mississippi Code of 1972 Annotated, and consist of a series of pamphlets issued during and immediately following the Regular Legislative Session of the State of Mississippi. The purpose of this service is to provide you with the most timely legislative information possible, and to make the most recent changes to the Mississippi Code available to you in an easy-to-use format.
The Advance Sheets contain all public acts enacted by the Legislature and approved by the Governor during the Regular Legislative Session. Appropriation bills and private and local bills are not included in the Advance Sheets.
The acts are arranged in order by House Bill and Senate Bill number, with House Bills appearing first. The final pamphlet contains a cumulative table of House Bills and Senate Bills and their corresponding chapter numbers.
Summary of acts; tables; index.

• Cumulative Legislative Summaries giving brief descriptions of important legislation;
• a Cumulative Table of Code Sections Affected showing the impact of legislation on sections of the Code;
