Jason Grumet, founder and president of the Bipartisan Policy Center, is respected on both sides of the aisle for his innovative approach to improving government effectiveness and impacting public policy.
Over the last decade, BPC has combined the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. Under Grumet’s leadership, BPC has harnessed the power of collaboration to advocate for principled and politically viable policy solutions to major policy challenges facing our country. Most recently in the 114th Congress, BPC successfully impacted legislation to improve the development of life-saving medical treatments; remove arbitrary barriers to exporting oil; modernize regulations on toxic chemicals; strengthen Medicare; and extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
In 2001, Grumet founded and directed the National Commission on Energy Policy, which produced a comprehensive set of policy recommendations many of which were incorporated into the 2005 Energy Policy Act. Grumet led the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management where he expanded the organization’s technical and advocacy capabilities and increased its presence in national policy discussions.
Grumet regularly authors commentaries and editorials in national publications, as well as participates in various broadcast interviews on major cable news networks. He frequently speaks at national forums, testifies before Congress, and is regularly sought out by policymakers and business leaders.
Grumet’s first book, City of Rivals: Restoring the Glorious Mess of American Democracy, was released in September 2014.
Grumet received a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University and J.D. from Harvard University. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland with his wife and three children.
