Bound Congressional Record: Main / Search Page

The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session. At the end of each session of Congress, all of the daily editions are collected, re-paginated, and re-indexed into a permanent, bound edition. This permanent edition, commonly referred to as the Bound Congressional Record, is made up of one volume per session of Congress, with each volume published in multiple parts. The primary ways in which the Bound Congressional Record differs from the daily edition are continuous pagination; somewhat edited, revised, and rearranged text; and the dropping of the prefixes H, S, and E before page numbers.

GPO Access currently contains Bound Congressional Record Volume 145 (1999; first session of the 106th Congress), Volume 146 (2000; second session of the 106th Congress), and Volume 147 (2001; first session of the 107th Congress). Additional volumes will be added in the near future.

Documents are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files. More.
