Government Documents (United States): Current Federal Legislation

Congressional Debates

The Congressional Record publishes Congressional debates, many bills and joint resolutions, presidential messages and treaties. The Record also published notices saying that each bill has been introduced and that simple resolutions and concurrent resolutions have been passed. The Record began publishing in 1873.  The Congressional Record has TWO pagination systems -- one for the daily edition and one for the bound. Although the content is generally the same, Congressmen can revise their remarks for the bound version.  Use HeinOnline's Congressional Record Daily to Bound Locator  if you need to fin daily or bound citations.  For more information on the Congressional Record, see An Overview of the Congressional Record and Its Predecessor Publications: A Research Guide
