The Center produces publications consistent with its mission of developing a greater understanding of Congress. Publications focus not only on examining the rules and procedures of Congress but also the ways in which the Senate and House of Representatives help determine the substance of law and policy for the Government of the United States – through their leaders, committees, caucuses, conferences, staffs and individual members, and through the interaction of Congress with the executive and judicial branches. Publications also focus on public opinion about Congress.
