Congressional Research Service (CRS)

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. It is known as Congess's Think Tank.  CRS reports are highly regarded as in-depth, accurate, objective, and timely, but as a matter of policy they are not made directly available to members of the public.

Open CRS provides citizens access to CRS Reports that are already in the public domain.

ProQuest Congressional - a subscription database - also has CRS Reports.  The Law Library subscribes so it is available for the use of Hofstra Law students.
