United States congressional hearing

From Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_congressional_hearing

Example of a legislative hearing, where a panel of

experts is summoned to inform policy making.

The picture is of a 2013 House of representatives

committee on Foreign Affairs hearing on North

Korea’s Nuclear Program

Congressional hearings are the principal formal

method by which committees collect and analyze

information in the early stages of legislative policymaking.

.

Whether confirmation hearings — a procedure unique

to the Senate — legislative, oversight, investigative, or a

combination of these, all hearings share common

elements of preparation and conduct. Hearings usually

include oral testimony from witnesses and questioning

of the witnesses by members of Congress.

George B. Galloway termed congressional hearings a

goldmine of information for all the public problems of

the United States.[1] A leading authority on U.S.

government publications has referred to the published

hearings as “the most important publications originating

within Congress.”[2] The Senate Library in a similar vein

noted “Hearings are among the most important

publications originating in Congress.”[3] Hearings were

not published generally until the latter part of the

19th Century, except some early hearings (generally of

special investigative committees) were published in the

series that are part of the Serial Set. Published hearings

did not become available for purchase from the United

States Government Printing Office until 1924 and were

not distributed to depository libraries until 1938.[4]

Unlike the documents and reports that are compiled in

the Serial Set “hearings do not constitute a real series”[3]

although in the modern era a trend toward uniformity of

numbering has resulted in all Senate hearings and prints

for each Congressional Session (commencing with the

98th Congress in 1983) being assigned a unique numerical

designation (in the style of what one scholar dubbed a

“combination code”)[5] published on the cover and title

page (e.g. S. HRG. 110-113; S. PRT. 110-13). A growing

number of House Committees are assigning numerical or

alphabetical designations for their publications

(e.g. 110-35, 110-AA).

.

The Law Library of Congress in a collaborative pilot project

with Google is undertaking the digitizing of the Library’s

entire collection of printed hearings (constituting

approximately 75,000 volumes). As of 2010 three collections

(on the decennial Census, FOIA and Immigration) have been

selectively compiled as a test. It is hoped the project will

eventually provide full-text access of the entire collection

which will be posted online by Google and the Library.[6]

ProQuest offers subscriptions to a database of digitized

hearings (published and unpublished) covering 1824 to

the present.[7]

CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS

http://tinyurl.com/jlfdt57

A hearing is a meeting or session of a Senate, House, joint,

or special committee of Congress, usually open to the public,

to obtain information and opinions on proposed legislation,

conduct an investigation, or evaluate/oversee the activities

of a government department or the implementation of a

Federal law. In addition, hearings may also be purely

exploratory in nature, providing testimony and data about

topics of current interest. Most congressional hearings are

published two months to two years after they are held.

 

.

 

Not all congressional hearings are available on FDsys. Whether or

not a hearing is disseminated on FDsys depends on the committee.

GPO continues to add hearings as they become available during

each session of Congress. If a congressional hearing is not listed in

FDsys, it is not available electronically via GPO at this time.

NOTE: If a committee has not made a hearing available electronically

via GPO for a specific Congress, the committee’s name will not appear

in the browse list until a hearing for that committee is made available in

FDsys. Committee publications may also be browsed via the FDsys 

 

congressional committee browse page.

 

FDsys contains selected House and Senate hearings for the 105th

Congress (1997-98) forward. The House and Senate appropriations

hearings for fiscal year 1998 forward are also included. Documents are

available as text and PDF. Graphics, including scanned images of

camera ready copy are omitted from the ASCII text version but are
contained in the PDF files.

The Law Library of Congress contains approximately 75,000

volumes of printed Congressional Hearings. Committees hold

hearings for a variety of purposes. Testimony is received from

members of Congress, officials of the executive branch, policy

experts, interest groups and sometimes the general public on

legislative proposals, the functioning of government programs,

subjects of controversy, and matters under investigation.

The Law Library’s hearing collection is a rich resource for anyone

interested in the history of issues that still face our country today.

As part of the Law Library’s transition to the digital future, a

collaborative pilot project was undertaken with Google, Inc., to

digitize the entire collection and make it freely available to

Congress and the world.  Three collections have been selectively

compiled to provide users with a test experience:

Census: U.S.

Freedom of Information/Privacy

Immigration

These selected Hearings, presented as Adobe Acrobat PDF files,

are samples of a larger group that will be digitized and made

available as a result of this project.  Ultimately, both the Library

and Google will provide full-text access to the larger group of

Hearings.

.

The digital copies of the Hearings resulting from this project

reflect the primary objectives of the digitization project—to

produce text-readable versions of the Hearings and to make

them available as quickly as possible.  There will be occasional

duplicate or missing pages, and there are some instances in

which the text is blurry or partially cut off.  In general, however,

the resulting text is clean, the pages bright, and the content

complete and highly readable.  In fact, as has been noted by

many involved in the review process, the digital versions of the

Hearings are often more legible than the original paper copies.

For each Hearing, all of the text is searchable within the PDF –

either using an Adobe product or any application that can index

or search text within a PDF.

.

Going into the pilot, the Library recognized that quality limitations

could result from the high-speed scanning process, but considered

that an acceptable trade-off when weighed against access to the

rich and vast legislative material contained within these volumes.

We hope you’ll agree as you have the opportunity to search and

read the content, but we would like to hear your comments –

positive or negative.  You’ll note a short form associated with

each volume where you can rate the quality of the image, value

of the digital copy, and record any general comments you may

have.

Among the most valuable Government publications are the hearings of the various committees of Congress. Of special importance to the archivist are those held before the House Appropriations Committee on the budgets of the various Federal departments and agencies. These often contain detailed information on the organization and work of the agency involved, provided to justify its financial requests. Of the various classes of hearings, those most significant for administrative history are the appropriation hearings and hearings concerned with the investigation and improvement of Government operations.

Committees regularly hold hearings on particular legislation over which they have jurisdiction or on matters that fall within their general oversight responsibility. Transcripts of the proceedings are printed by committees as hearings publications and, for the most part, made available to the public.

Congressional committee prints are publications that individual congressional committees prepare or commission primarily to aid them in doing their work. In contrast to the public reporting function of hearings, reports, and documents, committee prints historically have been publications produced primarily for the internal use of congressional committees themselves. Commonly, prints contain background studies, bill drafts, or statute compilations to aid the committee’s consideration of legislation, or they present analytical information or statistical data required by the committee for the exercise or its oversight functions. Usually published in limited edition, most committee prints generally were considered private committee documents and were distributed inconsistently, if at all. As a result, most prints became “fugitive” documents as soon as they were published. Committee prints were usually not announced in standard catalogs and bibliographies. Jurisdictional interests of congressional committees encompass an extremely broad range of economic and social subject areas and the breadth of topics covered by the committee prints reflects that diversity.

See also: Congressional Masterfile 1
This is a guide to the unpublished Senate hearings contained in Record Group 46. Many hearings that were initially held in executive session were never published. Thus, a large number of the unpublished transcripts in this collection are from closed, executive session meetings. (For example, hearings on nominations and committee business meetings to consider pending legislation were frequently held in executive session.) In addition to the holdings in RG 46, unpublished hearings located at Senate offices and other institutions are included in this guide. All of the hearings indexed are available on microfiche from CIS. Senate Resolution 474 provides for the opening of “investigative files” which concern national security or individual privacy only after fifty years. Pursuant to this provision, the files of the Subcommittee on Internal security [Committee on Judiciary] and the Permanent Investigations Subcommittee [Committee on Government Operations] were excluded from this collection.

The hearings are indexed by subject and organization, personal name, title, and bill numbers.

This is a guide to the unpublished House hearings contained in Record Group 233. Provisions of House Resolution 288, passed by the House in 1953 (83d Congress) affected the scope, content and size of the CIS collection. H. Res 288 closed all transcripts of both executive session and public hearings, together with all other records of House committees, immediately upon transmittal the to the National Archives. They remain closed for fifty years. However, records remain closed if the Clerk of the House determines, in the words of H. Res. 288, “that the use of such records would be detrimental to the public interest.” Although H. Res. 288 opens records “which have previously been made public,” such records may be closed if the Clerk determines that their availability is inconsistent with the “rights and privileges” of the House of Representatives.
Due to H. Res. 288 and the procedures adopted by the Office of the Clerk of the House, CIS was not able to include transcripts of less than fifty years in age, even when recorded as hearings held in open session, and were similarly unable to film many executive session hearings regardless of age. Read the Users Guide, p. viii-x, for an explanation of House restrictions.

The Summary Section publishes an abstract containing full bibliographic data, a summary of the publication’s nature and subject matter, and an outline of specific contents.
Individual testimony and insertions are abstracted and indexed. The main index is by subject and name. Five supplementary indexes are included: Index of Titles, Bill Numbers, Report Numbers, Document Numbers, and Committee and Subcommittee Chairmen. Each CIS annual cumulative issue includes an abstract and legislative history of each Public Law enacted during the year covered by that Annual.
