Posted February 27, 2013
BPC's Commission on Political Reform (CPR) will host the first of its national conversations next Wednesday, March 6 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley, CA. USA TODAY’s Susan Page will moderate the discussion. At the event, CPR will aggregate comments and questions from the social web and incorporate them into the program in real time.
