What are government documents?

A Government document is a work published by any government agency. That includes anything from your local government to state, federal, and other countries.

Government documents are much more than simple records of what happens in legislation, they can be detailed reports on subjects of interest such as renewable energy, they can be brief public service documents or instructional manuals such as a Know what to do about the flu or a drivers manual, they can be patents of inventions new and old, and much more. The legislative documents describing what happens in congress including speeches, and voting records are also quite interesting.
