Overview
Recent years have seen the federal budget process oscillate between exhaustion and crisis. The "grand bargain" that only recently seemed within reach has proven to be elusive. A growing number of observers believe that the challenge lies in large part with the convoluted process for budgeting within Congress. This project grant to the Brookings Institution will enable its Economic Studies staff, which will in turn be working with a broader array of colleagues at other institutions, to orchestrate a collective assessment of the current budget process from new and illuminating vantage points and set the stage for a longer run effort to improve it.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Lawfare's congressional coverage  
Lawfare is a blog dedicated to a nonideological debate about hard national security choices. Lawfare has cultivated a wide and technically savvy audience and effectively expanded their collective interest in areas beyond traditional security issues. Through this grant, Brookings will hire a fellow-level scholar to elevate Lawfare’s level of discourse on Congress. With expanded capacity and in coordination with existing in-house expertise on congressional process and procedure, Lawfare will consider the responsibilities, failures, and priorities of Congress through this nonpartisan forum. Such coverage will incorporate a deep understanding of congressional policymaking and a normative view of what the institution is and should be.
