“Building a Better Congress” Lecture

Craig Volden, Professor, Public Policy and Politics, Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy will share his work on the Legislative Effectiveness Project, a joint research project that seeks to understand why some members of the United States Congress are more effective at lawmaking than others. Precise research methodology has been developed to evaluate lawmakers’ performance, resulting in a Legislative Effectiveness Score for each member of the House of Representatives from the 93rd through the 112th Congresses (1973-2012). Volden and his co-author, Alan Wiseman, have recently published “Legislative Effectiveness in the United States Congress: The Lawmakers.”
