Pelosi Statement on Final Report by Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the release of the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress’ final report:

“The Modernization Committee’s final report marks the culmination of a four-year effort to strengthen the Congress’ ability to fulfill our Constitutional role as first among co-equal branches of government.  Through its tireless work, the Select Committee has charted this institution’s path forward: identifying opportunities for reform while serving as a model of collaborative, bipartisan lawmaking.

“Under the leadership of Chair Derek Kilmer, the Select Committee has drawn invaluable insights from every corner of the House community, including Members, staff, experts and constituents across the nation.  That diligent fact-finding has yielded more than 200 recommendations, from reasserting the power of the purse through a new Community Project Funding initiative to bolstering the recruitment and retention of diverse, talented staff.  Guided by the Select Committee’s vision and values, the House has proudly implemented 65 percent of those recommendations since 2019 – delivering positive, concrete and lasting change.

“The House owes the entire Select Committee a debt of gratitude for their unwavering commitment to strengthening the institution we cherish so deeply.  House Democrats are resolved to carry on their vital mission: ensuring the People’s House works efficiently, transparently and effectively For The People.”
