The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is an agency within the Library of Congress that works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. Its three-day Legislative Issues and Procedures Seminar introduces newly elected Members of Congress to legislative process and procedures, examines the most salient policy issues anticipated for the coming session of Congress, acquaints Members with the nonpartisan research and analysis available from CRS, and enables social interaction and networking among the new Members. This award also supports new efforts by CRS to support Members of Congress and staff with ongoing educational events and to develop video training materials covering legislative procedure. This recommendation is part of the Foundation’s support for Strengthening American Democracy, specifically its interest in increasing civility and reducing polarization in the political system.
