Lieberman’s Resolution for Access to CRS Reports

Senator Joe Lieberman, long time advocate of “CRS Reports to the People!” recently introduced S.Res.118 as seen in the Congressional Record, from April 29, 2009.

You can read more about the resolution at PolicyBeta’s post. The resolution would allow congressmen

to provide access to CRS Reports to the public on an official website. Rather than creating a new tool for public access, the resolution would let Members and Committees share reports with the public using the same online services that are available on Congress’ internal CRS website…the new resolution also requires that an index of CRS issue briefs and reports to be made public.
