Access to CRS Reports: The campaign for free web access to CRS (Congressional Research Service) Reports has been going on for as long as I can remember – it certainly predates the Web. An article on LLRX, via beSpacific, by Stephen Young is well worth reading if you are interested in these reports and the right to quick access to them. Many are online and the LLRX article describes where you can find them. You have always been able to ask your Member of Congress for copies, but that process could take weeks (this will vary from Member to Member). And you would have to know the name of the report or enough detail to describe it to the Member’s staff.
