Check out the websites below for more information on organizations that research Congress, its members, and the rules they use to make decisions. (This page is a work in progress. More organizations will be added.)
LegBranch.org is the hub for the congressional reform movement. It’s a trans-partisan space to discuss what’s working in our national legislature, what’s not, and how we can fix it. The site is also home to the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group (LBCWG), launched in Spring 2016 by Kevin Kosar at the R Street Institute and Lee Drutman at New America.
The Governance Project at the R Street Institute
R Street’s Governance Project aims to assess and improve the state of America’s national system of self-governance, with particular attention to Congress. It produces research papers and popular writing about our national legislature and our separation-of-powers system. The project also co-directs the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group and meets with congressional staff and members to discuss congressional and government reform issues.
