Welcome to the Office of the Legislative Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives

The Office of the Legislative Counsel provides legislative drafting services to the committees and Members of the House of Representatives on a non-partisan, impartial, and confidential basis. Our goal is to work with committees and Members to understand their policy preferences in order to implement those preferences through clear, concise, and legally effective legislative language.

The Office of the Legislative Counsel does not provide services directly to the public. Members of the public who have ideas for or questions about legislation should contact their Representative. To find out how to contact your Representative, or if you are unsure who your Representative is, please visit the House website.
