Committee prints can be anything a committee wants to print – some basic categories are: draft reports and bills, directories, statistical materials, investigative reports, historical reports, situational studies, confidential staff reports, hearings, and legislative analyses. The prints are an excellent resource for statistical and historical information, and for legislative analysis. The content of the prints will vary greatly due to the different concerns and actions of each committee.
