Bryan W. Marshall and Bruce C. Wolpe - The Committee: A Study of Policy, Power, Politics and Obama's Historic Legislative Agenda on Capitol Hill — in conversation with Tamera Luzzatto

Upcoming Event
Saturday, July 21, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Wolpe served as senior advisor to Representative Henry A. Waxman, Chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, and from 2009 to 2012 he kept a detailed political journal, capturing the daily business attending a major congressional committee. Working with Bryan W. Marshall, professor and chair of the department of political science at Miami University, Wolpe has turned his diary into an illuminating inside look at the 111th Congress. Framed by a political theorist’s questions about committee power, partisanship, and coalition building, the book follows the actual course of policy-making related to cap-and-trade, healthcare reform, tobacco, oversight of the BP oil spill crisis, and the debt ceiling agreement. Marshall and Wolpe will be in conversation with Tamera Luzzatto, senior vice president at The Pew Charitable Trusts and former chief of staff to Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jay Rockefeller.
