By Alyssa Loy
March has been a very busy month here at BPC with several members of the communications team traveling to the West Coast for the March 6 launch of our new Commission on Political Reform (CPR). Be sure to check out what you missed. And with just a few more weeks left in March, here’s a look at our upcoming events:
Join us next Tuesday, March 19, for the next installment in our Bridge-Builder Breakfast Series, “Building a More Sustainable Future for America’s National Parks.” BPC will partner with the National Parks Conservation Association and the National Park Hospitality Association for a conversation on potential funding strategies that can tap into the deep bipartisan appreciation for America’s treasured national parks. The event will include opening remarks from Co-Chair of BPC’s Democracy Project Governor Dirk Kempthorne and a panel discussion featuring BPC Senior Fellow Secretary Dan Glickman , Governor Christie Todd Whitman, and more. The event will conclude with an analysis of poll results and a look at next steps by Senator Mark Udall.
Don’t miss our “Filibuster Reform 2013: What Happened?” event on Thursday, March 21. We’ll discuss the bipartisan agreement reached to reduce the number of possible filibusters in return for more fairness in offering amendments. Keynote remarks will be given by Sen. Tom Udall, followed by a panel discussion featuring Richard Arenberg, Sarah Binder, Alan Frumin, and BPC Democracy Project Director John Fortier.
Be sure to check back next month to find out what we have going on in April. Stay tuned to our events page for more information and to register for all upcoming events.
