ProQuest Congressional Basic offers a comprehensive collection of congressional documents from 1789 to the present.

This primary source collection offers an unparalleled opportunity to understand the present by comparing today’s events and opinions with trends and patterns throughout the U.S nation’s history. House and Senate publications document the transformation of the U.S. from thirteen colonies into a world power, with primary source content on subjects ranging from war and military incursions to nuclear energy, space exploration, terrorism, and human rights.

Congressional hearings offer a unique perspective on all aspects of U.S. social, economic, and political history by presenting differing views from representatives of all societal sectors, including business, industry, labor, education, health, criminal justice, and government.

Congressional basic also covers bill tracking & profiles, bill text, members and committee coverage, the Daily Congressional Record and the Code of Federal Regulations and Federal Register, and political news.
