Via braddelong:

The Congressional Research Service is a taxpayer-supported ($100,000,000 a year) agency which prepares reports for legislators on a variety of subjects. These reports belong to the public, but are not generally released, though members of congress are authorized to provide copies of them on request. A few libraries and non-profit organizations have partial collections, but there is no centralized repository for these reports that is easily accessible to the public. Open CRS Network has collected over 8,000 of these public domain reports and made them available at their web site. They are also working to encourage Congress to provide public access to all these reports. In the meantime, citizens can help Open CRS expand its collection by requesting reports from their Congressional representatives and submitting them to the Open CRS project.
