Found some CRS reports this week

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) writes reports on topics of interest to Congress. These reports are generally from 6-25 pages long and give a concise, non-partisan view of a topic. For those doing research on Congressional actions on a topic, this is also a good source of information on the history. There is no free source of all these reports from the U.S. government, but there are groups that work to collect these reports (which are available upon request from your congressional representatives and/or senators). These are the reports that OpenCRS and Secrecy News released this week:

Interested in historical CRS reports? If you are here at the Boulder campus, check out the LexisNexis Congressional database, which has reports back to 1916.

Not on campus, but still want access to additional reports? The library has created a guide linking to various additional sources of CRS reports.
