The meeting's topic is: a Congressional Research Service for the 21st century.

The Congressional Research Service offers important research support to Congress' policymaking and oversight functions. The agency's nonpartisan civil servants also train both congressional staff and members in governance. Capitol Hill, however, has changed a great deal since CRS' governing statute was enacted in 1970. Thus, this meeting of the LBCWG will focus on how the agency performs in the current environment and what Congress wants and needs from the agency in the 21st century.
