  • News Reports is a strictly nonpartisan, fact-based news site whose mission is to help civic minded individuals and organizations track the most consequential and newsworthy issues debated in the U.S. House and Senate in the 117th Congress (2021-2022) and 118th Congress (2023-2024). We invite readers to use our information to make up their own minds about the overall legislative work of Congress and the voting records of individual lawmakers.
  • Thomas Voting Reports, the predecessor organization, was the longest running independent news service in Washington. From July 1973 until June 2021, we operated as a for-profit business serving news media customers throughout the United States. At one time or another over nearly five decades, more than 720 daily newspapers — including the New York Times Regional Newspapers, Washington Post, Cox Newspapers, Ottaway Newspapers, Philadelphia Inquirer, Richmond Times Dispatch, Seattle Times, Houston Chronicle and numerous other publications in towns and cities of all sizes in the 50 states and Puerto Rico — were paid subscribers to our news coverage of key issues and individual voting records in Congress.
  • In 2022, News Reports was established as a nonprofit organization to support this free-of-charge website.
