The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively as a reference and research service for the U.S. Congress. CRS prepares studies and issue briefs on a variety of topics providing background information for investigations and legislative proposals under study by Congress.
CRS Reports (1916-present) are succinct discussions of timely issues, often fifty pages or less, and hold significant research value.
