Behind the polarizing daily headlines, Democrats and Republicans have worked together to bring data, design, and technology to the floor and introduce the new House Digital Service. Boosted by a Select Committee on Modernization, Congress now has foundational capacity for data-driven lawmaking and is exploring technology tools to benefit a modern, democratic republic.
How will these changes impact the lawmaking process? Will they strengthen our Article One powers and rebalance the three branches of government? Can Congress become more responsive and capable of informed deliberation, discernment, and service to the nation?
Join the Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation on Wednesday, April 6 at 11 am on the Georgetown campus as we explore the recent progress toward modernizing Congress and its exciting potential for the future.
This event will be live-streamed on the Beeck Center’s Youtube page.
