Finding Congressional hearings without Lexis Nexis Congressional

  1. 1. Finding Congressional Hearing Testimony Outside of Lexis Nexis Congressional<br />
  2. 2. In Lexis Nexis Congressional, search by number and find a legislative history by PL number.<br />
  3. 3. Choose the legislative history for your public law.<br />
  4. 4. Scroll down to the hearings section. Take note of which committees were involved.<br />
  5. 5. Go to the Federal Digital System site: www.fdsys.govChoose “Browse Government Publications”<br />
  6. 6. A quick note about FDsys<br />FDsys includes only those hearings that were published by the Government Printing Office. It is far from inclusive.<br />
  7. 7. Choose “Congressional Hearings including House and Senate Appropriation Hearings.” Continue to click through until you get to the Congress, House/Senate, and committee where the hearing took place.<br />
  8. 8. Scroll down to see if the hearing you are looking for or a similar hearing is on the list. Choose PDF or text to see the proceedings.<br />
  9. 9. Searching FDsys<br />You also can do an advanced search in FDsys and limit your results to a given time period and to hearings. This is another option for finding relevant material outside of Lexis Nexis.<br />
