September 16, 2015

This nonpartisan research report examines how congressional polarization diminishes the effectiveness of federal agency programs and operations and looks at ways in which Congress can be a better steward of the executive branch.

The challenges facing our country are more complex and interconnected than ever, and addressing those challenges requires cooperation and compromise both within and between the branches of our government.

In the nonpartisan research report—“Government Disservice: Overcoming Washington Dysfunction to Improve Congressional Stewardship of the Executive Branch”—the Partnership for Public Service, with support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, examines how congressional polarization diminishes the effectiveness of federal agency programs and operations and looks at ways in which Congress can be a better steward of the executive branch.
