Proquest Congressional

Description of Proquest Congressional:

Access to Congressional Publications, Legislative Histories, Bills and Laws, Code of Federal Regulations, Federal Register, Congressional Record, Rules of Congress, Political News, Hot Bills, Hot Topics, Members of Congress, and Congressional Committees.  Also contains:

  • Washington Post (1987-current)
  • Roll Call newspaper (1998-current)
  • CQ Political Transcripts (1995-current), including news and media availability events, news briefings, press releases, and more.

I find PQ Congressional more difficult to use than or for tracking federal laws and regulations. However, PQ Congressional does have some helpful features.
