 To cite state bills in APA?

To cite the whole webpage, take a look at http://www.apastyle.org/learn/faqs/web-page-no-author.aspx

To cite a statute, see http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2013/02/writing-references-for-federal-statutes.html

Also from the Purdue OWL at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/25/ see

However, guidelines for references to legal materials can also be found on pages 216-224 in the 6th of the Publication Manual of the APA.

Sample reference to a statute in a state code and its explanation can be found on page 220:

Mental Care and Treatment Act, 4 Kan. Stat. Ann.§§ 59-2901-2941 (1983 &
Supp. 1992).

Explanation: This Kansas act can be found in codified version between sections 2901 and 2941 in Chapter 59 of volume 4 of the 1983 edition of Kansas Statutes Annotated. Two amendments to the act and additional references are provided in the 1992 supplement for the Kansas Statutes Annotated.
