The full text of recent bills is available online. Printed copies can be ordered from the Senate or House Document Rooms, or found in a depository library. Senate bills are also sometimes printed in the Congressional Record.
Senate Printing & Document Services may be able to provide a copy of a bill or resolution from the current Congress. Contact Senate Printing & Document Services for availability.
Bills and resolutions may be available in large library systems or college libraries, frequently as a part of their participation in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Over 1,100 libraries participate in the FDLP, collecting and/or providing public access to government documents. A directory of depository libraries is available on GPO's website. Since most depository libraries are within a university or state library, calling ahead to ask about hours is advised.
Some Senate bills are printed in the Congressional Record, generally on the day they are introduced. Quite often, a senator gives a statement of introduction, which is helpful in understanding the provisions of the bill. The text of House measures are rarely printed, and there are usually no statements of introduction.
