New Resource Guide Now Available: Federal Legislative History

Legislative history material may be useful in interpreting federal laws, but it can be difficult to compile documents across a broad range of sources. Check out our Federal Legislative History Resource Guide for tips before you begin! Tabs provide information on locating bills & resolutions, codified statutes & acts, hearings, reports, prints & documents, CRS reports, debates & votes, and presidential messages & signing statements. This guide explains resources that can be found in print or electronically through your Jenkins membership or for free online.
