Congressional Documents


Congressional Documents are frequently used to compile legislative histories. These materials may help interpret the intent behind a law or better understand the language of an act or statute. They can also answer questions related to committees and members involved, changes in language, and votes.

Congressional documents include Bills, Committee Prints, Congressional Debates, Hearings, House and Senate Documents, and House and Senate Reports.

The most comprehensive place for Jenkins members to research Congressional publications is through ProQuest Congressional. See the Using ProQuest Congressional page of this guide for more information.
