A new project to make Congress great again.
New America and the R Street Institute launched the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group in Spring 2016. The impetus for establishing the group is the widespread perception that Congress is dysfunctional.
The objectives of the group are:
- To create an enduring, bipartisan space to assess the capacity of Congress to perform its constitutional duties; and
- To collaborate on ideas for improving the legislative branch’s performance in our separation of powers system.
The Project Directors of the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group are:
- Lee Drutman, Senior Fellow, New America Political Reform Program
- Kevin Kosar, Senior Fellow, R Street Institute Governance Project
