Congressional Timeline

The Congressional Timeline, developed and maintained by The Dirksen Congressional Center, arrays more than 900 of the nation’s laws on a timeline beginning with the first Congress in 1789 and continuing to the present. A second timeline “band” depicts major political events as context for Congress’s law-making.
