Each term Congress publishes Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis, and Interpretation. This publication contains citations to and brief summaries of statutes and ordinances that have been held unconstitutional, along with the ground on which they were held to be unconstitutional and (sometimes) an indication of which justices concurred or dissented.

These citations and summaries are found following the Twenty-Seventh Amendment, in sections called "Acts of Congress Held Unconstitutional in Whole or in Part by the Supreme Court of the United States" and "State Constitutional and Statutory Provisions and Municipal Ordinances Held Unconstitutional or Held to be Preempted by Federal Law."

The current Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis, and Interpretation, as well as historical editions dating back to 1992, can be found on the U.S. Government Publishing Office website.
