Overview
The conventional view of Congress that it is an ineffective lawmaking body plagued by partisan conflict and gridlock. Yet, too often the raw measures of its legislative activity (number of laws passed, days in session, etc.) are inaccurate depictions of substantivelawmaking and governing. This project will help us to understand Congress’s ability to fulfill its legislative responsibilities, by gauging its success in renewing and updating existing programs and laws set to expire on a periodic basis. Prof. Scott Adler and collaborators will identify and track all expiring provisions in legislation enacted by Congress since World War II. The data should provide a more nuanced perspective on Congress’s legislative performance.

Grants to this Grantee
for the long-term impact of access to contraception census project  
This grant to the University of Colorado Boulder will expand a research study to assess the effects of access to the full range of family planning methods on poverty status and economic stability of women and their families. While this question is crucial to policy arguments worldwide, it has rarely been studied with adequate data on the women for whom family planning programs are intended.
