BPC’s newly launched initiative to carry on the work of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking will take a look at the next steps necessary to implementing the recommendations from the commission’s recent final report. The commission, sponsored by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), issued recommendations for improving access to government data, while simultaneously improving the security of Americans’ sensitive information. They are an important foundation for a better-informed policymaking process. While those recommendations represent great progress, the important work of creating a broader culture of fact-based, evidence-informed policymaking is just beginning.
Join us as we host an event to explore the key recommendations and look at the next steps necessary to build on the momentum created by the commission’s significant work.
