About the U.S. Congressional Documents Database
As laid out in the United States Constitution, the task of writing national legislation lies with the U.S. Congress, a bicameral branch of government consisting of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Congressional Record is the official record of U.S. congressional documents and the Congressional process. At the end of each session of Congress, the daily versions of this record are incorporated into bound volumes that eventually become the permanent Congressional Record.
HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Documents database features the complete Congressional Record bound volume set (1873-present), as well as its three predecessor titles: Annals of Congress (1789-1824), Register of Debates (1824-1837), and the Congressional Globe (1833-1873). In addition to containing the most complete account of congressional matters to date, this database includes other documents from the legislative branch, including the U.S. Congressional Serial Set, congressional hearings, committee prints, Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports, and more.
