“Future Of CRS” Panel Discussion Set For 4-11

Congressional Research Service director Dan Mulhollan’s retirement on April 2 — after running Congress’ think tank for 17 years — raises questions about the agency’s policies and future.

Is CRS meeting the needs of Congress? Has its analytical expertise eroded? Are CRS Reports as relevant, accurate, and understandable as they need to be, and should they be available to the general public? What does a 21st century research service look like?

The Advisory Committee on Transparency will host a panel of experts to discuss the future of CRS on April 11th at 2pm in Rayburn 2203.
