Congressional Reform Gains Media Attention

With both congressional dysfunction and disapproval ratings at an all-time highs, it is time for legislative reform. The Congressional Institute supports the idea that Congress should create a bipartisan House-Senate joint committee to reform the legislative process. Others share this idea, and it has been catching on in the media recently. Below is a list of media articles on the proposal.
