Overview
The Legislative Effectiveness Project is a non-partisan, objective, and data-intensive research program. It presumes that legislators vary in their effectiveness at lawmaking; that such differences can be measured systematically; that doing so yields a better understanding of how legislatures work and why they produce particular public policies; and that such research and understanding yields opportunities to improve lawmaking. Grant funding will allow the project to update its Legislative Effectiveness Scores for the U.S. House of Representatives, and to expand to the U.S. Senate. Grant funds will also help expand outreach and engagement to inform interested parties about the Scores and involve them in the Project.
