Public Policy focus rather than science?
If your topic is more about policy than science, try using the research guide (like this one) on Public Policy & Administration.
Another rich source of information are reports written by the Congressional Research Service for the U.S.Congress. These reports summarize key issues and background information for busy legislators - and students!
