Each new incoming president faces the daunting task of selecting hundreds of appointed Executive Branch officials. However, many of these positions go unfilled for months while the administration selects nominees and the Senate acts to confirm them. Is this lengthy nomination process contributing to the dysfunction and gridlock in Washington?
As Citizens for Political Reform, it’s up to all of us to make our collective voice heard to influence our leaders in Washington and across the country to make our government work. Every week, BPC will ask Citizens for Political Reform questions to solicit ways to improve government. Responses to these questions will be used to help inform the Commission on Political Reform and policy makers about public opinion.
