The Office of the Federal Register publishes slip laws, which are pamphlet prints of each public and private law enacted by Congress. Slip laws are compiled annually as the United States Statutes at Large. The Statutes volumes contain all public and private laws and concurrent resolutions enacted during a session of Congress, reorganization plans, proposed and ratified amendments to the Constitution, and Presidential proclamations. Included with many of these documents are sidenotes, citations, and a guide to their legislative history.

The Codification of Presidential Proclamations and Executive Orders provides in one reference source proclamations and Executive orders issued from 1961 through the first term of President Reagan that have general applicability and continuing legal effect. The Codification is divided into 50 chapters representing broad subject areas. Incorporated into each codified document are all amendments that were in effect on the most recent revision date.
