What is Bipartisan Policy Center Action?
Bipartisan Policy Center Action (BPC Action) advocates for bipartisan solutions to the challenges facing our country. In close partnership with their 501(c)(3) partner, the Bipartisan Policy Center, BPC Action brings Republicans and Democrats together to achieve policy changes on polarizing issues including congressional dysfunction.
Why do we think this project is important?
BPC Action works closely with the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, rank-and-file legislators, and other stakeholders to advance productive reforms and rules changes that strengthen the legislative capacity of Congress. BPC Action also aims to increase public awareness about reform and activate constituent engagement in support of a modern Congress that better serves the American people.
