Starting at the end of April, I’ve been publishing a newsletter for Congressional staff about Congress: the First Branch Forecast. It focuses on whether Congress is strong enough to do its job.
The weekly newsletter provides original reporting, rounds-up news stories, and provides a preview of upcoming hearings and markups that concern how Congress functions as an institution. Some regular topics include congressional oversight and the legislative process; transparency and technology; political science and politics; and congressional ethics.
