Need to do Research on Legislative History? Try ProQuest Congressional

ProQuest Congressional provides users with efficient, targeted access to the most comprehensive collection of historic and current congressional information available anywhere online.

ProQuest Congressional [linked from our database page] is one of the best databases to use to answer any legislative history question. It is available on campus, or remotely with authentication (CSU ID and Pin). One great feature is compiled legislative histories.  A compiled legislative history means that someone else has gone to the trouble of gathering and organizing all the documents related to the passage of an important piece of legislation in one place.

For more information on conducting legislative history research, see our Legislative History Research Guide.
