Book Description

Check out our guide on how to use the new tools of the majority to usher in the post-Trump era. Now that House Democrats can determine which bills get votes, there are two big opportunities to go on legislative offense in 2019 and 2020: messaging bills and must-pass bills. House Democrats can now also hold Trump’s entire administration accountable through oversight and investigations (subpoena power, investigatory power, congressional-hearings power and more!).
