Reports of the Congressional Research Service, provided at $100 million in annual taxpayer expense to brief members of Congress on current issues but not released to the public, are now available online from two independent sources. The reports can be obtained on request to individual congresspersons. The University of North Texas Libraries, working with a grant from the American Library Association, has posted 6,500 reports dating back to 1990. The Center for Democracy and Technology, working with five public advocacy groups, has put 3,300 reports, and thousands of updates of those reports, on line. (6/28/05)
