F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program, and More from CRS

Congress continues to instruct the Congressional Research Service not to make its products directly available to the public without prior approval.

“No funds in the Congressional Research Service can be used to publish or prepare material to be issued by the Library of Congress unless approved by the appropriate committees,” according to language in the latest House report on Legislative Branch Appropriations for FY 2015.

But since no CRS funds are being expended to make the following reports available to the public, the letter of the law is fulfilled.
