USCCAN first appears in an advance sheet edition, which contains the full text of all public laws as well as some Legislative History in the form of committee reports on the more significant enactments. In addition, it carries selected administrative regulations, executive documents, and various tables and indexes helpful in conducting research involving such legislation. At the end of each session of Congress, the pamphlet is bound to provide a permanent record of congressional laws.
