The Congressional Record (CR), known by different names over time, is the official record of proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. There are two editions of the Congressional Record: the daily edition and the bound edition. The daily edition is published daily when congress in in session and includes a "Daily Digest" summarizing the day's floor and committee activities. The bound edition is a compilation of the daily editions, which has been re-paginated and re-indexed. The bound edition is published once per session and is considered the permanent edition.
