Congressional Reform Concepts
For Consideration By
A Joint Committee on the Congress of Tomorrow

The following recommendations are the result of conversations that have taken place among several groups and are intended to serve as a framework for short-term and long-term change.

Such a framework would be best achieved through the creation of a bipartisan, bicameral Joint Committee on a Modern Congress, patterned after those created during the last Century for a similar purpose.


  • Create through the auspices of an outside Coalition a national commission on civil discourse and its impact on national government and civic participation, including analysis of the institutions of government, the political process, the political parties and the media
  • Continuation of the bipartisan retreats conducted in Hershey, PA, by non-profit organizations dedicated to better governance.
