The R Street Institute launched the Governance Project to assess and improve the state of America’s system of national self-governance, with particular attention to Congress. The project aims to understand the causes for the legislature’s current behavior and identify reforms to improve the first branch’s performance in our separation-of-powers system.
As part of this effort, the R Street Institute partnered with New America to launch the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group. It meets regularly to discuss ways to strengthen Congress. To learn more and/or join us, please see http://LegBranch.com.
