Overview Edit

In 1895, Congress codified the role of the Joint Committee on Printing (JCP) originally established in 1846, to oversee qualifications of "journeymen, apprentices, laborers, and other persons necessary for the work" at GPO along with establishing a number of other technical and administrative oversight responsibilities. The 1895 measure also established printing formats for congressional bills, hearings, and documents, and the Congressional Record that are still in use today.
