Record Group 4: Co-Sponsored Bill Files

1973-1992 (Congressional Terms: 93-102)
Document Cases: RJL 4/1-55

The co-sponsored bill files follow the session dates of Congress; however, they are not separated into subgroups by Congressional terms. They are categorized into the following series of records:

Series I: Co-Sponsored Bills - This series is arranged similarly to those of Record Group 1, the Issues Files, by the general topics described under CONTENT SCOPE of the Finding Guide. It contains House Resolutions, Joint Resolutions, Concurrent Resolutions, and Simple Resolutions made by the House of Representatives (and the Senate, if applicable) on issues of the day. The files are not listed with designated subtopics.
Series II: Legislative Information - This series categorizes the bills by date and consists of computer printouts of each bill description, its committee of referral, the status of the bill and the digest of the bill, that is, what action is/was authorized and which governmental agency will carry out the intention of the particular bill. It also indicates if the bill was enacted into law ("Public Law No.") and the passing votes.
Series III: Co-Sponsored Bills-Related Matters. This series consists primarily of correspondence and special reports regarding some of the co-sponsored bills in Record Group 4, Series I. The files are arranged by the general topics described under CONTENT SCOPE of the Finding Guide, by date and by bill number.
