U.S. Government Information: Press Releases

Guide to information resources by and about the federal government.

About News Releases

Press releases are great primary sources to learn about federal actions and priorities, official statements, administrative changes, new resources, and opposing views about topics under discussion. I save press releases from many of these sites, including all of the agencies listed, regularly in the Wayback Machine in an effort to help preserve long-term access to information that may be of research interest. Where possible, I save the press release itself as well as documents (e.g. correspondence, publications) linked in the release.

Agencies: Press Releases

U.S. Embassy in Russia

Congressional Caucuses (Select)

House Members

The list of representatives is too long to include here, but you can find a directory and links to their websites at the House website. Most of the individual websites will have a link to News, Press, or Media at the top of page, and press releases will appear there.
