In this research note, we introduce congressbr, an R package for retrieving data from the Brazilian houses of legislature. The package contains easy-to-use functions that allow researchers to query the Application Programming Interfaces of the Chamber of Deputies and the Federal Senate, perform cleaning data operations, and store information in a format convenient for future analyses. We outline the main features of the package and demonstrate its use with some practical examples.
