U.S. Government Documents: Congressional Record

Created by Fred Muratori

The Congressional Record

A transcript of the proceedings and debate in the House and Senate is printed daily in the Congressional Record. Frequently, permission is granted a Member by unanimous consent to revise and extend his remarks in the Record if sufficient time to make a lengthy oral statement is not available during actual debate. These revisions and extensions are printed in a distinctive type and cannot substantively alter the verbatim transcript.
