How do I Search for a specific date, page number, and term in the Congressional Record?


When searching for a specific date using the Section Date field, you must enter the date in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY (i.e. 11/14/2000).

If you want to see everything that took place on November 14th, 2000, you can simply run a search for the date. To run this search using the Advanced Search option, enter 11/14/2000 into the first search box, select Section Date from the drop down menu, and select Congressional Record from the title listing:

Now, let’s narrow our search to look specifically for the Senate Amendment on page 26099.

Enter 11/14/2000 into the first search field, select Section Date from the drop down menu. In the next row, select Text from the drop-down, and enter 26099 into the search box. In the next row, select Text from the dropdown, and enter “Senate Amendment to H.R. 4986” into the search box.  Select Congressional Record from the title listing and click search.
