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.

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.
