The Journal of the House of Representatives is a written record of proceedings within the United States House. Article I, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the House "keep a Journal of its Proceedings".
Historically, the House Journal was an important source of precedent on questions of legislative procedure and certain areas of constitutional law.
