The Congressional Research Service (CRS) serves as shared staff to congressional committees and Members of Congress. CRS analyzes and reports on current and proposed policies. Until very recently (9/2018) CRS itself did not make its reports available even when they were not classified. So we have had to rely on other groups for access.
