The US Congress is mired in gridlock, with spending bills now only passed under threat of government shutdown. But how can Congress get past this dysfunction and begin to pass legislation without such partisan rancor? Stuart Kasdin explores one potential solution to these problems: the introduction of advisory committees made up of stakeholders and interest groups, which would be attached to Congressional authorizing committees. He writes that to overcome Congress’ status quo inertia, the reform could be implemented in stages and depending on the circumstances of individual committees.
