Legislators pass laws with specific goals in mind. Unfortunately, these goals are not always clear - especially when there has been no judicial interpretation of the law. This is why legislative history research is conducted. Researchers pull together all of the documents created in the passing of a law and strive to ascertain what the purpose of the law is and how it should be interpreted and applied.
