|How to Cite: Bill Tracking Reports|
This database provides bill tracking information such as the date introduced, last action, sponsors, a list of major actions, and a bill digest and summary.
For each citation, include:
Bill number and title—the title usually appears in the entry header; when it does not, use the title as it appears in the synopsis. When the title is lengthy, abbreviate it, giving a portion sufficient to distinguish the bill from another with a similar subject. Use an ellipsis (…) to show that the title is abbreviated.
Congress number (107, 108, etc.); date introduced; and date of last action
