U.S. Senate Document:

Every bill passed by the U.S. Senate or House is accompanied by a report providing the rationale and background for the bill.  When I was a member of the staff of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, I worked on the passage of the so-called "Superfund" legislation, a major environmental bill. When it passed, I was assigned to take partial statements written by three staff colleagues and rewrite/assemble them into a single, coherent statement of purpose to explain the rationale for the legislation. This document is that statement of purpose.

Promotional and Advertising Content

One of the most challenging copy-editing and proofreading jobs I've ever done was this 48-page direct mail piece, which is full of tabular material as well as text.  I copy-edited and proofread all but the vendor ads:
