R Street’s Governance program aims to assess and improve America’s system of self-governance, with a focus on Congress and our electoral system. This year the Governance team’s work focused on continued efforts to modernize the legislative branch, broad coalition work around improving our electoral system and defending election officials and voters from violence, reducing rampant overspending on Capitol Hill, and educating lawmakers, staff and the public about their powers in Congress through written work, briefings and podcasts like Politics in Question.
