What's Happening in Congress

Date & Time

May. 13, 2020
2:00pm – 3:00pm ET


During a weekly “Wilson Policy Brief Series” Wilson Center Scholars and expert guests provide their analysis of the current state of the world during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The eighth installment of the series featured a conversation with Congressman Charlie Dent, Senior Policy Advisor at DLA Piper LLP (US); and Wilson Center CEO, Congresswoman Jane Harman. The two discussed what is currently happening in Congress: the end of bipartisanship, the ballooning deficit, and whether Congress can or should provide more relief for COVID-19.
