The Brookings Institution: House Oversight Project

The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Their mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.

​Why We Invested

Brookings will conduct ongoing research and real-time tracking of a full range of oversight actions being taken by the House of Representatives. This oversight tracking will help researchers and reform advocates better understand the areas of focus of the current House majority, will give congressional reformers insight into the ways in which the House is conducting oversight, and will be an integral piece in providing context for the conflicts between Congress and the executive branch over investigations.
