WASHINGTON, D.C. — This grant will support "Legislative Issues and Procedures: the CRS Seminar for New Members," a three-day offsite meeting that helps to prepare the new Members of Congress for their legislative duties by providing them with (1) balanced, objective, nonpartisan analyses of policy issues likely to be under consideration during their first six months in office; (2) an introduction to the processes by which Congress operates and enacts legislation, and (3) an overview of the budget process.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Library of Congress Congressional Research Service $90,000 between 2003 and 2013.
