Can Congress Reform Itself Again?

June 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0

Free

Over the years Congress has embraced reforming the institution, but that process often was voter driven. Congress has also periodically looked inwards and asked if its processes are in lockstep with the current times and demands. Examples are the “Watergate Babies” in the mid-70s and the Gingrich Revolution of the mid-90s. Might the current hyper-partisanship be an equally impactful event that will change the way Congress operates? A bipartisan panel of former and current Members of Congress will discuss these issues. Moderated by Librarian of Congress, Dr. Carla Hayden, panelists include current Members of Congress Derek Kilmer (D-WA) and Will Timmons (R-SC): (Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress); and former Members of Congress James Blanchard (D-MI) and Bob Walker (R-PA).

Presented in Partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress.
