New Ideas for a New Day in Congress

The Horizon Project


8:30 - 10:00 AM EST

As the 110th Congress gets under way, it does so against the backdrop of significant, urgent, and growing challenges facing our nation’s economy. Comprising 11 members from a range of sectors—from business leaders to policy innovators—The Horizon Project was established to develop legislative ideas for the Senate Democratic Policy Committee and others who share concerns about America’s continued prosperity and competitiveness, economic security, and commitment to economic and social justice.

The Horizon Project has just published a report that articulates a set of ideas in four key sectors: trade and economic growth, education, health care, and infrastructure. Their creative ideas will be presented to the leadership and members of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, as well as the Senate Republican Policy Committee, later in the day, but the report and recommendations will be publicly unveiled for the first time at this event.

The Center for American Progress Action Fund invites you to join The Horizon Project and other distinguished panelists for a lively discussion about these recommendations.
