The U.S. Congress is responsible for passing laws on U.S. Government terrorism policy. Congressional committees are responsible for funding government programs, conducting oversight of these programs, and congressional legislation requires agencies such as the State Department to write regular reports on terrorism and other subjects as part of Congress' oversight responsibilities. There are also congressional support agencies such as the Congressional Budget Office, Congressional Research Service, and Government Accountability Office that assist congressional oversight by preparing reports and data for members of Congress and their committees.
