House Committee to Introduce Bipartisan Legislation for Congress Reform


The Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress will unveil a bill that will work to incorporate recommendations provided by the committee within 2019.

The Moving Our Democracy and Congressional Operations Towards Modernization houses 30 recommendations that are intended to optimize Congress' service capabilities, the committee said Monday.

The bill aims to address various areas of reform such as human resources and educational opportunities and will enable the Select Committee to work with the Commitee on House Administration in the implementation of the recommendations.

"We’ve passed nearly 30 unanimous bipartisan recommendations to make Congress work better for the American people, and today is just the latest step in our work to bring real reform to the People’s House,” said Rep. Derek Kilmer, D.Wash., and Rep. Tom Graves, R.Va.

The Committee led various briefings, listening sessions and hearings in a move to modernize Congress and has posted recommendations on a bipartisan capacity.
