Published on: Author: Teresa L Leave a comment

The Hastings Law Library has just acquired Proquest Legislative Insight, a database of fully searchable PDFs of congressional legislative documents. These include the full text of the Public Law itself, all versions of related bills, law-specific Congressional Record excerpts, committee hearings, reports, and prints. Also included are Presidential signing statements, CRS reports, and miscellaneous congressional publications that provide background material to aid in the understanding of issues related to the making of the law. This new database makes doing legislative history research incredibly easy.
