U.S. Congressional Reports

Congressional reports originate from congressional committees and deal with proposed legislation and issues under investigation. There are three types of reports:

  • House and Senate Reports contain reports of congressional committees concerning proposed legislation and/or contain findings on matters under investigation.
  • Senate Executive Reports contain reports of the Committee on Foreign Relations relating to Treaties between the United States and foreign nations, which have been submitted to the U.S. Senate for ratification, or reports of various Senate Committees regarding nomination of individuals.
  • Conference Reports are agreements on legislation that is negotiated between the House and Senate via conference committees. It is printed and submitted to each chamber for its consideration, such as approval or disapproval.
