Public to get rare look inside the Congressional Research Service, with attrition, morale points of contention
Kevin Kosar, a vice president of policy at R Street Institute who used to work as a CRS researcher from 2003 to 2014, estimates that in the American Law Division, at least 15 percent of the workforce has turned over in the past four years.
“If you have high turnover amongst that core, it’s going to have a negative effect on service,” Kosar said.
Clarification: An earlier version of this story should have stated that Kevin Kosar’s claim of 15 percent turnover in the CRS’ American Law Division was per year.
