  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 
100th anniversary of the Congressional Research Service, otherwise 
known as CRS on Capitol Hill. CRS is a unit of the Library of Congress 
that provides policy analysis to Members of Congress and our staffs. 
CRS is a tremendous resource for Congress. In 1914, in its wisdom, 
Congress created the predecessor to CRS, named the Legislative 
Reference Service, to help support our work. In 1970, the Legislative 
Reference Service was expanded and became CRS. These days, we rely on 
CRS to provide us with authoritative and objective information so we 
can do our jobs. CRS has an impressive repository of reports on 
subjects we consider, and we look to CRS and the professionals who make 
up its workforce to provide us with factual and nonpartisan answers. I 
congratulate CRS on its Centennial, and we look forward to another 100 
years of service to Congress.
