Reports from the Congressional Research Service

The following is reposted from the Scout Report for December 4, 2009:

Open Congressional Research Reports for the People

 Each year, the American taxpayers provide $100 million for the operating costs of the Congressional Research Service. The Service crafts hundreds of timely research papers and reports, but they can be hard to locate. The Open Congressional Research Reports (OPEN CRS) initiative makes this process much easier. The initiative is a project of the Center for Democracy & Technology, and they work with partner organizations such as the National Library for the Environment and the Thurgood Marshall Law Library. On their homepage, visitors can view the “Recent Reports”, which include reports dealing with federal employee’s retirement system and Medicaid. Visitors can also use the search engine to look for reports of particular interest, and they may also sign up for their RSS feed as well. Finally, visitors can also look through their “Featured Report Collections” area. 

You can visit the OPEN CRS site at http://opencrs.com/  Searching for “engineering” as a report keyword should turn up many reports dealing with engineering topics.  You can, of course, search for other topics as well.
