After receiving approval from the Joint Committee on Printing (JCP) of the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and Library of Congress (LoC) will be working together on a project to digitize certain important legal and legislative documents of the United States. The project will cover public laws and private laws, as well as proposed constitutional amendments passed by Congress, as published in the official U.S. Statutes at Large from 1951-2002. In addition, the GPO and LoC will be digitizing official debates of Congress from the permanent volumes of the Congressional Record from 1873-1998. These materials will be authenticated and accessible by the public on GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) and the LoC’s THOMAS legislative information system.
