This weeks discovered CRS reports...

Secrecy News released information this week on how the Congressional Research Service (CRS) is further cracking down on the release of CRS reports. They received a copy of a memo to CRS staff in which CRS director Daniel P. Mullohan states "I have concluded that prior approval should now be required at the division or office level before products are distributed to members of the public." While you can always get CRS reports from congressional members, researchers, other government agencies and journalists have also been able to get reports directly from CRS, which now appears to be forbidden.

Here are the latest CRS reports found by OpenCRS and Secrecy News:
Interested in historical CRS reports? If you are here at Boulder, check out the LexisNexis Congressional database, which has reports back to 1916.
