CQ Magazine

New name, same great content

Our name may have changed, but CQ Magazine, formerly CQ Weekly, still provides the same superior reporting on the world’s most powerful legislative body completely and accurately every week. The CQ news team—by far the largest on Capitol Hill, with more than 100 reporters, editors, and researchers—covers virtually every act of Congress, delivering nonpartisan news and analysis unavailable anywhere else. It is the choice of 95% of the members of Congress, the White House, every federal agency, the media, and thousands of leading businesses.


Content and Features

  • Each weekly issue gives readers in-depth reports on issues looming on the congressional horizon, plus a complete wrap-up of the previous week’s news, including the status of bills in play, behind-the-scenes maneuvering, committee and floor activity, debates, and all roll-call votes
  • Written in plain-English prose that makes it easy for people “outside the beltway” to understand complex legislation and its ramifications just as well as any Washington insider
  • Users can search by topic, page number, committee, “exact phrases or words,” bill number, byline, or reporter, and by Boolean full-text and date searches. Detailed floor votes dating back to August 1983 are easily retrieved
