Policy Briefings For Congress Are Now Online

As announced by the Washington Post (6/28/05), U.S. policy briefings by the Congressional Research Service are now online at www.opencrs.com.

The reports have long been praised as nonpartisan, concise and readable. But they are reserved for members of Congress, committees and their staffs. A member of the public can get one generally only if a lawmaker chooses to release it. There is also at least one company, Penny Hill Press of Damascus, Md., that gathers up reports and then sells them for as much as $20 apiece. LexisNexis announced last week that it will also begin offering the reports through its online service.
