Congressional Agencies

As congressional work has grown and become more complex, Congress has come to rely on the advice and assistance of a large number of auxiliary agencies and a large congressional staff. One of the most important agencies is the Congressional Budget Office, a group of experts in economics and statistics, who aid legislators by providing independent, impartial advice on the president's budget proposals. Another is the Library of Congress, which serves Congress as a research facility, and is also the US national library and home to some of its most precious texts, including copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
