Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut will deliver the 4th Annual Bernard and Irene Schwartz Lecture on Congress on Monday, April 19th at the Library of Congress. Entitled “The Health Care Debate: A Look at Policy and Process,” the event is presented by the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress at New York University.

This examination of the motivations, policies and strategies employed to move the health care bill through Congress and to the President’s desk for signature will begin with an expert panel, which will discuss the role of the major players, the meaning of this legislation for our country, and the impact it will have on the American people.

Immediately following the panel discussion, Senator Dodd will offer his insights on the historic nature of both the policy and process of the health care reform movement. A short question and answer session will follow his keynote address.
