The Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress passed 24 bipartisan recommendations that seek to help reform the Congress' staffing, accessibility and technological functions.

Some of the recommendations include the modernization of onboarding processes for new representatives and the simplification of the Congress' human resources division, the office of Rep. Derek Kilmer said Thursday.

Additionally, a number of recommendations call to establish public access to House proceedings and update the Congress' technologies and systems.

The Select Committee held discussions with industry leaders and House representatives in a move to augment Capitol Hill's staff retention and citizen engagement.

“These 24 bipartisan recommendations make important strides to strengthening the capacity of the Legislative Branch so we can better serve all Americans," said Kilmer.
