The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) asked Kevin Kosar, who was a researcher at the Congressional Research Service (CRS) for 11 years, to talk about the concerns often expressed by Hill staffers regarding making formal CRS reports public.
- Former CRS Researcher Calls for Public Access (August 19, 2015).
Kosar gives an informed, insider perspective on why four oft-stated reasons for not releasing CRS Reports to the public (concerns such as “CRS reports are only meant for Congress, not the public”) are either incorrect or not a barrier to making the Reports public.
