What Is the Congressional Research Service?

Many of you might have wondered about the cryptic designation “CRS” that appears regularly in this blog. That stands for the Congressional Research Service, a component of the Library of Congress that, at a cost of over $100,000,000 annually, acts as the research arm for Congress, generating non-partisan reports of great value. Reports, by the way, that are prohibited for distribution to the public. (More on this here.) More information on this organization can  be found in its 2015 annual report  where an enumeration of its various “products” are listed.
