The Foundation Center, a U.S. nonprofit service organization, has developed the Catalog of Nonprofit Literature, a searchable database of the literature of philanthropy. Updated daily, this bibliography of works in the field of philanthropy contains citations to materials collected by the Center’s five libraries as well as selected literature from other sources.  It covers the foundation world, the nonprofit sector — particularly works on such topics as fundraising and proposal development — and works related to charitable giving, including project reports, studies, and statistical analyses.  You can search all citations, or you can limit your search to material that is available in fulltext form.

In the Senate, any number of senators may introduce a single bill; in the House, a limit of 25 representatives may cosponsor a bill. Many bills are actually committee bills and therefore are introduced under the name of the (sub)committee’s chairperson as a formality”. – GPO site

Reported in House:  “This phrase accompanies a committee’s report of its findings and recommendations to the parent house after it has examined a bill. The version of the bill as reported includes changes, if any, that have been recommended by the committee.” GPO site
