NYC | Senators George Mitchell and Olympia Snowe
BPC Co-Founder and former Senate majority leader George Mitchell, and BPC Senior Fellow and former Senator Olympia Snowe spoke in New York City in November on the importance of bipartisan solutions to many of the nation’s most pressing issues. The former senators outlined the work that is underway at BPC to make Washington work again. The discussion was hosted by Marlene Hess, chair of the International Women’s Health Coalition, and her husband Jim Zirin, senior counsel of Sidley Austin LLP.
Snowe, who co-chaired BPC’s Commission on Political Reform, highlighted the more than 60 recommendations BPC has developed; the efforts to implement these recommendations, which included the launch of the Healthy Congress Index; and the follow-on work of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration.
