Find a bill

There are 17,149 bills and resolutions currently before the United States Congress, but of those only about 7% will become law.

Congress works in two-year legislative sessions tied to the elections. The current session is called the 117th Congress and it began on Jan 3, 2021. All bills not enacted by the end of the session on Jan 3, 2023 die, and Congress will start over.

Because there are so many bills and resolutions, it can be difficult to find the one you are looking for. Please consider your options:
