Section-by-section analysis

A summary of the contents of a bill organized by its sections. Often prepared by the bill's sponsor or (in the case of a reported bill) by committee staff, a section-by-section analysis is a good source of information on legislative intent. A section-by-section analysis sometimes can be found in introductory statements in the hearing on the bill, the committee report on the bill, or in debate about the measure.
