CRS Reports No Longer Distributed to 'Non-Congressionals'

Material Information at Hamline reports that “according to the CRS Director Daniel Mulhollan, CRS reports cannot be distributed to ‘non-Congressionals’ without prior approval from CRS officials.” See Mulhollan’s memo.
This is quite interesting and troublesome, given that “in 1998, the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration encouraged the publication of CRS Reports on the Internet.”
