- The Bipartisan Policy Center's (BPC) Commission on Political Reform and USA TODAY released a new national poll that shows Americans are interested in participating in public service, but are reluctant to run for and serve in public office.
- "Americans support multiple ways to serve their communities, and they value it highly. But they are increasingly skeptical of the value of some types of governmental service, given the hyper-partisanship that has coarsened the tenor of politics and prevented government from being able to achieve results. We must change that environment to restore government's capacity to solve problems," said former U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe, a commission co-chair and BPC senior fellow.
