Ryan Urges Senate to Pass Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission Bill

July 27, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the House passed H.R. 1831, The Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission Act. In response, House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement:

“Creating this commission is the first step in a long-term effort to change the mindset in Washington. When we’re making policy, we shouldn’t focus on effort, but results. And we need the best minds in evidence-based policy to figure out how we can use the data we already collect to improve how government works. That’s what this commission will do. So I want to thank the House for passing this bill and urge the Senate to do the same.”
