Hi:

Hoping that a paralegal, law student, lawyer, anybody knowledgeable can help me decipher how to read the "history" notes after a Florida Statute.
For example:
CHAPTER 197

TAX COLLECTIONS, SALES, AND LIENS
197.192

Land not to be divided or plat filed until taxes paid.—No land shall be divided or subdivided and no drawing or plat of the division or subdivision of any land, or declaration of condominium of such land, shall be filed or recorded in the public records of any court until all taxes have been paid on the land.

History.s. 137, ch. 85-342; s. 36, ch. 87-224; s. 8, ch. 92-32.

How do I decipher the history section? I've tried the Florida statutes to see if they had a FAQ to explain this but I've been completely unsuccessful so far.

Thanks for your help.

Finally found what I needed. I just had to dig a little further.



The 's' means the statute was created by section 137
the 85 means it was created in 1985
342 means it was the 342nd law created during that session

The subsequent references are amendments to the original statute.
