U.S. Government Documents: Senate Executive Documents & Reports

Created by Fred Muratori

Senate Executive Documents & Reports

These are "formal documents that trace the part played by committees in the Senate's exercise of its constitutional Advice and Consent role in the making of treaties and nominations." (CIS) They have existed in printed form since 1818, but before 1930 -- if published prior to official confirmations or ratifications -- they were considered confidential materials and so were not widely distributed. Executive documents and reports were not included in the Serial Set until 1980. Senate documents and reports are cited as Exec. Doc. and Exec. Rept. They are numbered sequentially within each Congress (e.g., Exec.Rept. 99-1).
