Congressional Research Service (CRS) Reports

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively for the Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and members of both the House and Senate. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS is a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill.

CRS experts assist at every stage of the legislative process — from the early considerations that precede bill drafting, through committee hearings and floor debate, to the oversight of enacted laws and various agency activities. crs

CRS approaches complex topics from a variety of perspectives and examines all sides of an issue. Staff members analyze current policies and present the impact of proposed policy alternatives to Congressional members.
