10th Anniversary

2017 marked the Bipartisan Policy Center’s 10th anniversary. For a decade, BPC has worked to find actionable solutions to America’s major policy challenges. Since its formation in 2007 and under the guidance of its founders—Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole, and George Mitchell—BPC has debated differences, forged hard-fought compromises, and found consensus on issues critical to all Americans.
We believe that the best policy ideas result from a constructive collision of ideas.
