A Practical Guide to the Legislative Process in the U.S. Congress
By Richard A. Arenberg
Foreword by Alan S. Frumin
Congressional Procedure explains the legislative and congressional budget processes along with all aspects of Congress.
A clear explanation of the workings of the United States government that should be required reading for politically engaged Americans.
Steve O’Keefe of Orobora accepting the IPPY Award on behalf of TheCapitol.Net for Congressional Procedure in New York, May 28, 2019
An ideal guide, Richard Arenberg leads the way through the labyrinth of congressional procedure. Having staffed in both the House and Senate, crafted legislative tactics, and taught how Congress works, he can explain complex issues lucidly.

[T]he ultimate guide and master blueprint to the legislative process.
Olympia Snowe, U.S. Senate (R-ME) (1994-2013); U.S. House of Representatives (1978-1993)
It may take time to be familiar with the ins and outs of Capitol Hill, but Arenberg gives us a great place to begin and an excellent manual to carry with us on the way.
