A new network of House and Senate conservatives today announced the upcoming launch of the Article I Project. The group will develop and advance a broad agenda to strengthen Congress by reclaiming constitutional powers now being exercised by the Executive branch.
The launch will take place on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016, at 8 am EST at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C.
“If conservatives want to reform federal policy, we first have to reform the way policy gets made. The Constitution gives Congress the power to make the laws, but for too long Congress has either shirked its legislative responsibilities or delegated them to the Executive branch. It’s time that Congress reclaim its rightful Article I lawmaking powers,” Lee said.
“The Article I Project is not some misty-eyed longing for a simpler time or era that’s come and gone. It’s a new network of conservatives working together to recover Congress’s correct constitutional role, and I’m honored to be a part,” Hensarling said.
