Greenwich Roundup's daily aggregation of press releases, reports, and other news items from the web pages of 2,300 federal agencies, Capitol Hill offices, and interest groups (including thinktanks and watchdog organizations) of every imaginable purpose and persuasion.
Items that implicate a public policy issue are selected for the report without consideration of the viewpoints they express. No litmus test—partisan, ideological, theological or otherwise—is applied to the selection of news items.
Greenwich Roundup's daily reports consistently introduce town residents to ideas not yet imagined, issues not yet confronted, viewpoints not yet expressed and—most importantly—to articles not yet written.
When you talk through a storm. The Federal Communications Commissionand the Federal Emergency Management Agency co-wrote a how-to guide for finding and communicating with family members during and after a natural disaster.

The list includes tips that are often overlooked when preparing for a disaster.
Palestine backgrounders. The Congressional Research Service released a pair of reports at the end of last month that provides Congress with background information about U.S. relations with Palestine, and the foreign aid that the U.S. has provided to Palestine. Note: CRS reports are not distributed to the public or the news media.
