I'm researching a US House Representative by reading the bills he voted on, which are from the early 1900s. Where can I find the full text of those bills?
The Representative I'm researching was part of the 59th through the 62nd US Congresses (March 4, 1905 - March 3, 1913). A sample bill he voted on was HR28812. The description of the bill from voteview.com is INDIANA POWDER FACTORY MUST OPERATE AT MAX. CAPACI., and the link to the voteview.com votes is here: https://voteview.com/rollcall/RH0620249
Things I've tried
- I've been to congress.gov and typed in the bill number (HR28812), but nothing comes up.
- I also tried looking for bills on C-SPAN >> Congress >> All Bills >> and specifying the 62nd Congress, but no bills come up (link: https://www.c-span.org/congress/bills/?chamber=house)
Here are all my questions:
- Where can I find the full text of the sample bill and others like it?
- Where would a paper version of the example bill be stored, or would this kind of bill have likely been thrown away or lost, or would it still be around somewhere?
