Congressional Records

The Congressional Record

The Congressional Record is a substantially verbatim account of the remarks made by senators and representatives while they are on the floor of the Senate and the House of Representatives. It also includes all bills, resolutions, and motions proposed, as well as debates and roll call votes.

The Daily Digest summarizes floor and committee actions in the Senate and the House of Representatives, and provides page references to those actions. It is the last section in each edition of the Congressional Record and serves as an index to that day's proceedings.

The Daily Digest can be browsed from the website.

Résumé of Congressional Activity

The Résumé of Congressional Activity provides statistical data on congressional workload, such as the number of days in session and the number of bills introduced and enacted into law. The current monthly Résumé and every annual edition are online.
