Evolution and Future of Congress Scholars talked about a report, The Evolving Congress, the Congressional Research Service made as part of its centennial celebration. The panelists analyzed the evolution of Congress over the past century, including a more divided Congress, partisan politics, and electronic communications and social media. They also discussed whether the legislative body was prepared to address domestic and foreign challenges.

“The Evolving Congress: Exploring 100 Years of Change in the Legislative Branch” was a program held by the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and the National Capital Area Political Science Association at the National Press Club. close
