PSL Laws & Resources

The information made available online by PSL jurisdictions  varies greatly.   Some are very comprehensive and may include the text of the law, regulations, FAQs and the template poster. Others are more spare. Some do not have a dedicated website.

Here is the list of PSL jurisdictions as of December 21, 2016. To see a jurisdictions resource material, click on its name. In some cases, resource material is at more than one site. In that case, a second address is listed.

PSL developments are occurring regularly.  Jurisdictions may add or modify the resources they make available. When dealing with PSL issues, make sure to check the jurisdiction’s site for the latest and most complete resource material.
