Congressional Record

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Congressional Record is the official record of the United States Congress.[1] It is published by the United States Government Printing Office. It is issued when the United States Congress is in session. Indexes are printed about every two weeks. At the end of a session of Congress, the daily editions are assembled into bound volumes creating permanent editions. The Congressional Record is similar to Hansards, which report on the parliamentary debates in the UK's Westminster system of government.[2]
