Conference committees are used to resolve difference between the two chambers of Congress. Even an astute observer may miss the creation of conference committees unless they regularly read the Record or similar type of document of Congress.

Is there a good resource to identify all conference committees that have already occurred in the current Congress? If not, is there a good resource for past Congresses? (By past Congresses I mean not the 116th Congress).

There is an API for accessing information but I am not familiar with what is available. See New govinfo API.
