Capitol Hearings

With a new year comes another round of congressional hearings and policy-making. Ever wanted to know what goes on in these hearings? At Capitol Hearings, you can listen to daily congressional hearings LIVE on the web. A service provided by C-SPAN, Capitol Hearings includes an upcoming schedule of hearings (next hearing is Tuesday, January 12: Committee on Armed Services), as well as provides links to the House and Senate Committees. Congressional hearings typically contain oral testimonies as committees collect and analyze information that help shape legislative policy on a particular issue. Congressional hearings are later published as part of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set (Serial Set). The Serial Set is available in print at the Indiana State Library. Serial Sets from 1985 to present have been digitized and uploaded onto FDsys. Hearings are also recorded and can be viewed at C-SPAN.
