Former Members of Congress to explore possibility of Congressional reform

On Wednesday, January 21, at 7:30 p.m., the National Archives, in partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress, presents a special program titled: The Partisan Divide: Congress in Crisis. The program is free and open to the public and will be held in the William G. McGowan Theater of the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC. Attendees should use the Special Events entrance on Constitution Avenue at 7th Street, NW.

Is Congress incapable of reforming itself? Former chairs of the Democratic and Republican House campaign committees, Tom Davis (R-VA) and Martin Frost (D-TX), in their book The Partisan Divide, dissect the causes of legislative gridlock and argue a common-sense, bipartisan plan for making Congress function again. Dan Glickman from the Bipartisan Policy Center will lead a panel discussion with Davis, Frost, and Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD). A book signing will follow the program.

The National Archives Museum is located on the National Mall on Constitution Avenue at 9th Street, NW. Metro accessible on Yellow or Green lines, Archives/Navy Memorial station. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., daily. Free admission. Additional information on exhibits and programs at the National Archives Museum can be found online.
