This data collection contains descriptions of legislative activity in the United States Senate during the First Session of the Ninety-fourth Congress (1975). The four data files were obtained from the Government Division of the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress.

Part 2 describes committee activities, including detailed information about every committee meeting held, e.g., dates and times, open or closed, purpose(s) of meeting, subject area covered, and number and type of witnesses appearing before each. Part 3 contains information about the Senate floor sessions, including times of convening and adjourning and number of record and quorum votes taken. Part 4 contains records of the committee and subcommittee assignments of all Senators and the factors influencing those assignments, e.g., each Senator's Senate leadership position, state seniority, Senate seniority in years, party affiliation, party seniority in years, state population in the thousands, prior occupation, and former public office held.
