Weekly reports produced by the well-regarded Washington reporting service Congressional Quarterly Inc. Each 24-page report focuses on a specific topic that is perceived as being either newsworthy or an issue of broad interest in the public policy sphere. Recent issues have covered topics such as "Fixing Urban Schools," "Prison Reform," and "Curbing CEO Pay." Each issue includes a summary of the issue, a chronology, an "At Issue" column focusing on the pros and cons of some aspect of the issue, and a three or four page bibliography for additional information. Issues are available as both hyper-text and as Adobe PDF images.
