NYTimes: Effort Renewed for Public Release of CRS Reports

In perfect timing with Lieberman’s recent resolution, The New York Times published an article today about CRS Reports entitled “Group Seeks Public Access to Congressional Research” by Stephanie Strom (print version appears on page A20 on May 5, 2009).

The article focuses on the efforts of the Center for Democracy and Technology and other non-profit organizations such as the Sunlight Foundation and OpenCRS, to fight for free public access to the CRS Reports. I wish the article had mentioned the efforts of the University of North Texas Library, but I’ll give them kudos here to make up for the NY Times oversight. 😉
