From the Document: "The Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress (Select Committee) has been charged with the important responsibility of recommending improvements to the U.S. House of Representatives to help members of Congress and their staff better serve the American people. During the 116th Congress, the Select Committee passed 97 recommendations to make Congress a more efficient and effective institution. These recommendations addressed many issues within the Select Committee's jurisdiction and were detailed in the Committee's Final Report for the 116th Congress. The Select Committee met on July 29, 2021, to pass its sixth set of recommendations. These recommendations are the first set passed in the 117th Congress and reflect the work of the Select Committee's new roster of members. The recommendations are broadly focused on issues connected to congressional staff and focus on increasing staff capacity, diversity and inclusion, strengthening the congressional internship and fellowship experience, and expanding accessibility to Congress for staff as well as the general public. The recommendations address issues the Select Committee took up in public hearings, virtual discussions, member meetings, and in meetings with stakeholders."
