Offices & Services

The Legislative Resource Center (LRC)

The Legislative Resource Center (LRC), a division of the Office of the Clerk, supports House legislative functions and keeps the public informed about the House and its legislative activities. LRC ensures that House-related information is accessible to all.

Legislative Information

LRC supplies House Members with the documents under consideration on the House Floor. LRC also gathers and verifies information on actions by House Committees and the President of the United States regarding legislation. The data are stored in the Legislative Information Management System (LIMS), an in-house system that tracks all legislation from its introduction on the Floor to its signing by the President.

Through two functions, the U.S. House of Representatives Library and the House Document Room, LRC serves as the repository and a disseminator of official House legislative documents and publications. The Library’s collection comprises more than 155,000 volumes, as well as legislative and legal databases. The House Document Room stores hard copies of legislative documents and publications from the current and two preceding Congresses, and makes them available to the public upon request, free of charge.

In addition, LRC responds to inquiries from congressional staff and the public regarding legislative information about Congress.

Public Disclosure

LRC manages and serves as the customer service contact for lobbying disclosure filings, as well as public disclosure forms from all House Officers, Members, and staff. The Center provides filers with forms and guidance on filing procedures, and responds to inquiries about disclosure from filers and others.

LRC gathers, organizes, and retains disclosure registrations and reports, and makes them accessible to the public, on-site and virtually.

LRC compiles and publishes these official lists and informational publications about the House:

Support for Congressional Offices

LRC works with the Government Publishing Office to support congressional offices with orders for official stationery and envelopes and other print services.
