Congressional Research Service’s 2016 Annual Report

This iteration highlights that “…Congress relied on CRS expertise, placing more than 62,000 requests for custom analysis and research. The Service hosted more than 9,200 congressional participants at seminars, briefings, and training; published more than 3,500 new or updated reports; summarized more than 6,300 bills; and maintained nearly 10,000 products on its website for Congress….”(iii) FYI, this $100,000,000 Congressional think tank is a branch of the Library of Congress. More on it here.

For those who would like access to the “products”; i.e., reports, sidebars, documents, etc. generated by the CRS in fulfillment of its mission, please go to either FAS (Federation of American Scientists) Congressional Research Reports page or everycrsreport.com (contrary to the .com suffix, the reports are freely available).
