Congressional Reports: About
Congressional reports originate from congressional committees and deal
with proposed legislation and issues under investigation. There are two
types of reports:
- House and Senate Reports: Reports of congressional
committees concerning proposed legislation and/or contain findings on
matters under investigation.
- Senate Executive Reports: Reports of the Committee
on Foreign Relations relating to Treaties between the United States
and foreign nations which have been submitted to the U.S. Senate for
ratification, or are reports of various Senate Committees regarding
nomination of individuals.
GPO Access contains House, Senate, and executive reports from
the 104th Congress (1995-96) forward. The database for the current Congress
is updated irregularly, as electronic versions of the documents become
available. Reports are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document
Format (PDF) files.
