Event description: 


How did a particular policy get passed by Congress?  Or, more simply, how did a bill become a law?  These are basic questions in politics, but researching legislative history involves many steps, questions, and historical sources.  In this session, we will discuss how to research the history behind a law passed by Congress.  The session is being presented by John Dearborn, Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at Yale University, holding appointments in the Center for the Study of Representative Institutions at the MacMillan Center, the Policy Lab at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, and the Department of Political Science
