One of the best sources used to locate legislative histories is the Congressional Publications database.  To get to the database please go to the Library homepage at  >  Databases by subject.  You may  be prompted for your username and password.  You can access databases either by subject area or alphabetically by name of database (Congressional Publications).

Once in the database, click on the link for "Search for Legislative Histories."  You can search by keyword.  For help with searching, click on the question mark in the top right corner of the screen.

If you are not a member of the Hofstra Community, please contact Georgina Martorella, the Depository Coordinator for assistance with government information.
