Washington, D.C., Feb. 18 — National Journal today introduced its new digital Document Library, a one-stop searchable database of tens of thousands of documents aggregated from a wide range of policy and politics sources.
The new National Journal Document Library is a growing collection of research reports, testimonies, white papers, and press releases updated in near real-time from the websites of hundreds of sources that include global government agencies, think tanks, trade associations, and academic and corporate institutions.
“With thousands of documents on politics and policy from a range of authoritative sources, the Document Library truly sets National Journal apart from its free competitor set and offers a valuable new tool for subscribers who follow issues in depth,” said Jessica Perry, vice president and general manager of digital operations for National Journal.
National Journal members and subscribers are given full access to the Document Library and its advanced search and alerting features. Non-members and visitors to NationalJournal.com are given limited access to the library. National Journal worked with noodls, a real-time global information aggregator, to create the library.
Visitors to the free site can access the Document Library a number of ways, including through National Journal‘s policy verticals (Energy, Tech, Defense, and Health Care), and through the search function. Members and subscribers can also access the database directly at http://www.nationaljournal.com/library.

"House GOP leaders on Tuesday night pitched a new strategy to avert a looming government shutdown that includes children's health funding and the delay of ObamaCare taxes. Lawmakers need to pass a short-term stopgap bill by midnight Friday, when money for the federal government runs out. The latest GOP plan would keep the government’s lights on through Feb. 16, and be coupled with a six-year extension of funding for the popular Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The continuing resolution or CR would also delay ObamaCare's medical device and Cadillac taxes for two years, and the health insurance tax for one year starting in 2019."

"Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen confirmed that President Trump used 'tough language' in an Oval Office meeting last week over immigration policy, but she said she did not hear him describe some African countries and Haiti as 'shithole countries,' as has been reported." When pressed she, also said she "didn't know" whether Norway was a predominately white country.
"Chances of a government shutdown grew Monday as Republicans concluded that they would be unable to reach a long-term spending accord by the Friday deadline. GOP leaders are now turning to a short-term funding measure in hopes of keeping agencies open while talks continue, but Democratic leaders say they are unlikely to support any deal that does not protect young illegal immigrants. Aides to key negotiators from both parties planned to meet Tuesday in an effort to rekindle budget talks, setting up a Wednesday meeting of the leaders themselves. If they cannot agree, the government would shut down at midnight Friday for the first time since 2013."
“'As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come,' Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters."
