Prof. Light to Testify Before Congress on Federal Reform
NYU Wagner's Professor Paul Light goes before Congress on Wednesday, February 15, to make the case for top-to-bottom reform of the federal government.
"Evidence is all around us," he says, "of dwindling confidence in government and its ability to respond effectively to evident challenges, national and international, economomic and political....The United States desperately needs more accountable, efficient and productive government at every level."
Dr. Light is the Paulette Goddard Professor of Public Service at NYU Wagner. He received the 2010 Herbert Simon Award from the American Political Science Association for his book "A Government Ill Executed: The Decline of the Federal Service and How to Reverse It."
