The List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA), which is available in the Federal Register Library, contains proposed, new, and amended Federal regulations that have been published in the Federal Register since the latest revision date of a CFR title.

HeinOnline announced in June it’s completion of the entire back file of the Congressional Record, making us the first and only online database to contain the complete Congressional Record Bound Volumes!

Many of you have been asking what our plan is to fill the gap in the CFR in HeinOnline. Therefore, we wanted to take a moment to share our plans with all of you.
