*Bicameral Conservative Group To Launch Article One Project at Kirby Center*
WASHINGTON – A new network of House and Senate conservatives today
announced the upcoming launch of the Article I Project (A1P). The group
will develop and advance a broad agenda to strengthen Congress by
reclaiming constitutional powers now being exercised by the Executive
The launch will take place on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016, at 8 am EST at
Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C.
“If conservatives want to reform federal policy, we first have to reform
the way policy gets made. The Constitution gives Congress the power to make
the laws, but for too long Congress has either shirked its legislative
responsibilities or delegated them to the Executive branch. It’s time that
Congress reclaim its rightful Article I lawmaking powers,” *Lee said.*
“The Article I Project is not some misty-eyed longing for a simpler time or
era that’s come and gone. It’s a new network of conservatives working
together to recover Congress’s correct constitutional role, and I’m honored
to be a part,” *Hensarling said*.
Sens. Lee and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Rep. Hensarling will give addresses at
the start of the event and will be available for Q&A as well. Reps. Cynthia
Lummis (R-WY), Dave Brat (R-VA), Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Gary Palmer
(R-AL), Mia Love (R-UT), John Ratcliffe (R-TX), and Mark Walker (R-NC) will
also be on hand for panel discussions hosted by *National Affairs* Editor
Yuval Levin and American Enterprise Institute Scholar James Capretta.
