Congressional Research Service (CRS) Reports
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.
Includes every CRS report that’s currently available on Congress’s internal website. A project of Demand Progress in collaboration with the Congressional Data Coalition — a bipartisan coalition founded by Demand Progress and the R Street Institute to promote open legislative information.
