Periodically, concerns have been raised about the number and variety of products created to document congressional activity. Other concerns focus on the process for authorizing and distributing printed government documents to Members of Congress, committees, and other officials in the House and Senate. These concerns reflect broader issues related to the manner in which govt. and private information is created, assembled, distributed, and preserved in light of the emergence of electronic publishing and distribution. From its establishment in 1861, the Govt. Printing Office (GPO) has compiled, formatted, printed, bound, and distributed documents that have recorded the activities of Congress (and the work of other governmental entities). In current practice, more than half of all govt. documents originate in digital form, and are distributed electronically. As a consequence of electronic production and dissemination, some congressional materials are now more readily available to wider congressional, governmental, and public audiences than when they were only produced and distributed in paper form. Contents of this report: (I) Congressional Information Distribution Practices in Transition; (II) GPO and Congressional Printing Practices; (III) Discussion and Analysis; (IV) Potential Options for Congress; (V) Congressional Printing: Data Tables: Appropriations for the Government Printing Office, Congressional Printing and Binding Account; Congressional Printing: Page Volume; Congressional Record, Daily Edition: Publication and Congressional Distribution Data; Legislative Measures; Congressional Documents and Reports. Figures.
