Homeland Security/Terrorism and Health
Law & Policy
The Congressional Research Service, an arm of the Library of Congress, serves
the legislative process by providing Congress with non-partisan and in-depth
legislative research and analysis on a variety of topics. CRS produces or updates
more than 3,000 studies and other publications each year, none of which are
distributed to the public. Because CRS reports are created using public money
and are not readily accessible to the research community, the Thurgood Marshall
Law Library has created an online collection in the subject areas of Homeland
Security/Terrorism and Health Law and Policy.
Other useful web sources of CRS reports include the following subject archives.
The Thurgood Marshall Law Library obtains CRS reports from a variety of
sources and makes no warranties of any kind regarding the contents of the reports
