The Ways and Means Committee of U.S. House of Representatives today announced the release of the 2016 version of the “Green Book”—that provides descriptions and current data about health, welfare, retirement, disability, and related programs under the jurisdiction of Ways and Means.
The Green Book’s official title is: Background Material and Data on the Programs within the Jurisdiction of the Committee on Ways and Means, and it is available electronically on the Ways and Means website.
The Green Book was prepared by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) under the direction of the Ways and Means staff.
The Ways and Means Green Book is not to be confused with the Treasury Department’s explanation of tax proposals in the administration’s budget—i.e., Treasury’s “Green Book”—or with the Joint Committee on Taxation’s explanations of tax legislation enacted during a particular Congress, which is referred to as the “Blue Book.”
