Congressional Research Service reports online

As reported in a news release from Associated Press, a new web site, Open CRS, operated by the Center for Democracy and Technology provides links to nearly 8,000 reports from the CRS. The reports range from a variety of topics relevant to current political issues. Although these reports are neither classified nor restricted, they are generally not available to the public except when posted by members of Congress on their web sites or distributed to their constituents. Examples of available titles include: Marine Protected Areas (MPAs): Federal Legal Authority; Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP); Education for the Disadvantaged (ESEA); State and Local Homeland Security: Unresolved Issues; Gasoline Prices: Policies and Proposals.

The web site also offers RSS feeds for All Recent Reports and All Recently Added.
