House Committee "Summary of Activity" Reports

From OpenCongress Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



As outlined in House Rule XI, clause 1(d), each committee in the House of Representatives must periodically submit a report or summary of its activities to the House. Starting 2011, the reporting requirement was changed from submitting one report no later than January 2 of each odd-numbered year to submitting two reports each year (the first no later than July 1st and the second no later than December 31st). The first congress affected by this requirement change is the 112th Congress (2011-2013).

For easy reference, links to the publicly available online reports from 1995 (the 104th Congress) are compiled below.

A few irregularities in what reports could be found online:

  1. The Intelligence Committee has an outstanding gap from 2001 to 2011. Regular reports are available from 1995 to 2001 (the 104th, 105th, and 106th Congresses) and then nothing until 2011 (the 112th Congress).
  2. The Committee on Natural Resources and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform only have reports available from 2007 to the present (the 110th Congress on).
  3. The Ethics Committee only has reports available from 2003 to 2011 (the 108th Congress through the 111th.)

The committees vary slightly how far back the publicly available reports go, but most start with 1995 or 1997 (the 104th or 105th Congresses).
