Congressional Research Service

Officially, the Congressional Research Service exists only to serve requests from the U.S. Congress for information on a particular topic.   A CRS publication usually is not available to the general public without the intervention of a member of Congress. Thus, there is no single public site for identifying and retrieving "all" CRS publications.
