Congress has been described as a horse and buggy institution in a jet age. Yet, the Founding Fathers built in time making Congress a deliberative body that would not be subject to the immediate “passions and prejudices” of an electorate. Various “fixes” are proposed each year to bring the Congress into the Twenty-First Century.

Directions

  1. Review the legislation proposed by Congressmen Eric Swalwell (R-CA) and Steve Pearce (R-NM), Swalwell, Pearce Introduce Resolution to Bring Congress into 21st Century
