If you are citing several sections of a state’s set of laws, you could create a citation for the set of state laws in its entirety and then mention the chapter, section, or other identifying numbers in your text.
New York State Legislature. Consolidated Laws of New York. The New York State Senate, www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/CONSOLIDATED.
Another approach would be to cite the web page of an individual section of a set of state laws. For example, if you want to cite the web page for section 3601 of the Consolidated Laws of New York, you would begin the entry by listing the New York State Legislature in the Author element and putting Consolidated Laws of New York in the Title of Source element. In the Number element, include the identifying numbers or part information that appears for the specific law being cited. In this example, the following numbers are included: chapter number, title number, article number, part number, and section number. The name of the publisher of the law, the New York State Senate, is included in the Publisher element, and the date the web page was last updated is included in the Publication Date element. Since the Consolidated Laws of New York is a work contained on the website The New York State Senate, include in your entry a second container that identifies the name of the website and its URL.
New York State Legislature. Consolidated Laws of New York. Chapter 16, title 5, article 73, part 1, section 3601, New York State Senate, 27 Apr. 2018. The New York State Senate, www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/EDN/3601.
