    Have you been able to find any of the attachments? I’m specifically interested in the site listing for BB138

     
    • The bill pages all contain the following note:

      “Some of these documents have attachments that can only be viewed with Adobe Reader and cannot be viewed in the “preview” modes within most Web browsers on most phones or tablets. To view these attachments, you must download the pdf and open it in Adobe Reader. You must then click on the attachment icon (represented by a paper clip) to view any attachments to the board bill.”

      I use Safari browser for Mac and view PDFs within the browser. I can’t see any attachments. I think if you use Adobe Reader they can be viewed, but I have no way to test it.
