The Congressional Research Service (CRS) seeks a Legislative Analyst to serve in the Office of Legislative Information.
The Office of Legislative Information is the organization within CRS and the Library of Congress that is mandated by statute to provide digests of all legislation introduced in the United States Congress. These bill digests are considered to be authoritative summaries of Federal legislation; they are consulted widely by lawmakers, policymakers, academics, and members of the public who are seeking accurate, objective descriptions of both new and amended Federal legislation.
This position is at the GS-12 level ($74, 872-$97,333). Interested applicants must apply online at http://www.loc.gov/crsinfo and refer to vacancy #100116 in all correspondence. Applications must be received by July 12, 2010.
Drawing on his/her knowledge of Federal law and legislation as well as knowledge of specific subject fields (e.g., criminal law, environmental law and regulation, international law, etc.), the Legislative Analyst: analyzes newly-introduced and amended Federal legislation to determine the legislation’s meaning, intent, and impact, if any, on existing law; prepares official digests and other summaries and abstracts of Federal legislation; communicates and collaborates with the CRS research community to ensure integration of legislative analysis and research products; and consults with congressional staff and committees to resolve questions regarding legislative intent and/or errors or omissions in legislative drafting. The Legislative Analyst performs this work in a digital online environment.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century. CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation’s best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
CRS is committed to enhancing diversity — we welcome and encourage minorities, women, and persons with disabilities to apply.
