New Speaker? Same Congress: The Path Ahead for Governing in The House

This event has passed.

The historic first ouster of a Speaker of the House sets in motion a contest to select new leadership for the chamber and raises important questions about Congress’s ability to govern with slim majorities and growing partisanship.

Two former U.S. Representatives—Republican Rodney Davis and Democrat Ed Perlmutter—join BPC to share their perspectives on how Republicans and Democrats can move forward, and in the short term, keep the federal government operating.

Panel Discussion

Rodney Davis | Former U.S. Representative

Ed Perlmutter | Former U.S. Representative

Michael Thorning | Director of Structural Democracy, BPC (Moderator)
