Now Avilable: Explore the Bound Congressional Record on Congress.gov
From the In Custodia Legis Blog:
We are excited to start adding the volumes of the Congressional Record (Bound Edition) (also referred to as the “Bound Congressional Record”) to Congress.gov. If you’re not familiar with the Congressional Record, it is a record of the debate and proceedings that occur on the floor of Congress. It is published in two different ways. The Daily Edition of the Congressional Record is paginated by day within a section. The sections of the Daily Edition include a summary of the day’s proceedings called the Daily Digest, as well as sections for the House and Senate, and a section known as the Extension of Remarks, in which members of the House publish additional statements that were not actually delivered on the House floor. The Bound Congressional Record is compiled later.
With the addition of the Bound Congressional Record to Congress.gov for the 98th to 103rd Congresses (1983-1994), you can research congressional perspectives on major issues from the 1980s and early 1990s. For instance, you can read about congressional reactions to the fall of the Berlin Wall (see page 28061) and the dissolution of the Soviet Union (see page 62).
