Presidential messages that are read during House chamber proceedings are printed, in full text, in the House section of the Congressional Record. Presidential messages are usually also printed in the Congressional Documents series. Examples:

Abstracts and committee referral information for executive communications, petitions, and memorials are printed in the House section of the Congressional Record. Full texts of these documents are not usually printed in the Congressional Record. Communications to the House are delivered to the committee(s) to which they are referred. Committees have physical custody of the documents, and archive them.

A committee or submitting entity may publish the full text of communications documents in other government publications. Petitions and memorials received in the House may be identical to items received in the Senate, and may be found printed in the Senate section of the Congressional Record.
