Compiled legislative histories may be found for many popular federal acts. ProQuest Legislative Insight is your best bet. There are no formal requirements for crafting a legislative history and some are more comprehensive than others. Finding a less comprehensive legislative history is still a good start.

If you can find a compiled legislative history, then someone else has done much of the work for you.
