Capitol Hill Conference: The Constitution’s First Branch⏤Rediscovering the Legislative Power

May 2, 2019

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Congress is the Constitution’s first branch of our government, but Congress no longer plays the lead role in formulating federal law and policy. How has Congress’s role in governance changed in recent decades? Why has it changed? And what can be done to restore Congress to its proper place at the center of our constitutional system?

On May 2, the C. Boyden Gray Center for the Study of the Administrative State will host a conference to discuss these questions, with an array of expert scholars and practitioners.
