Briefing: How Congress Reforms Itself

February 6, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The briefing will take place on Wednesday, February 6 at 10:00 a.m. in the Cannon Office Building, Room 122, Washington DC.

As recent changes in the Senate’s filibuster rule have shown, the rules that govern the two bodies of Congress are not fixed: they have repeatedly undergone revision and reform.  What has brought about major rules changes in the past?  How have these changes altered how Congress works?  What unintended consequences have they caused?  Leading historians of Congress will discuss these questions.

Please RSVP for the event here.

You can find more information on the briefing website.
