During the course of a two-year Congress, Government Relations prepares Legislative Reports for each Session which provide detailed information on how the U.S. Congress has addressed the issues on the USCCB legislative program. These reports provide information on the status and disposition of bills and resolutions concerning these issues. They also contain information on the USCCB positions on legislation and actions taken by Conference to promote those positions.
Legislative status reports are presented by Government Relations at each USCCB Administrative Board meeting. Typically, an interim legislative report is issued during each Congressional session and a final legislative report is issued at the end of each session. A comprehensive final legislative report is released at the end of each two-year Congress. Below you will find the most recent legislative report, followed by the final reports for the previous two Congresses.
The legislative reports (below) are made available to you in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need to have Adobe Acrobat 3.0 or higher installed on your computer in order to view the report in this popular format. If you do not already have it, you may download and install the current version of this application free of charge at the Adobe Acrobat Reader's web site. If you have any difficulty opening any of the links below or you would like to inquire about receiving a hard copy of the report, email us.
