"Legislative facts are facts of which courts take particular notice when interpreting a statute or considering whether Congress has acted within its constitutional authority. For example, courts take judicial notice of legislative history, including committee reports." Id., citing Territory of Alaska v. American Can Co., 358 U.S. 224, 227, 3 L. Ed. 2d 257, 79 S.
