Research: US Congress
The study of Congress is a central part of the scholarship that happens every day at the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies. Under the Constitution, Congress is the preeminent branch of the U.S. government and CCPS reflects that reality in our studies. CCPS scholars have written important and widely cited papers and have contributed to numerous books that have contributed to the understanding of the flow of power and the process of the Legislative Branch. CCPS has also hosted panel discussions exploring these issues. In addition, Prof. Oleszek is a senior specialist on the legislative process with the Congressional Research Service and has written numerous reports for that agency.
