Congressional Research Services Turns 100!
"When the Legislative Reference Service (LRS) was established in the
Library of Congress in 1914, the small staff provided what its name
conveyed—reference information to assist Members of Congress in their
legislative work. Over 100 years, LRS evolved into today’s Congressional
Research Service (CRS), a staff of 600 that exclusively provides
Congress with nonpartisan policy analysis."
