Congress & Budget Policy

Dan Palazzolo

Professor of political science, Dan Palazzolo's current research examines coalition building in Congress in an era of partisan polarization. He studies questions such as how much potential actually exists for bipartisanship or other forms of cooperation across party lines in the context of re-emergent partisanship? Why do some issues still cut across party lines or fail to evoke partisan divisions even in this period of intense partisan polarization? How are the politics of these issues different from the issues that fit more neatly into party government in Congress?

Dan can speak to a wide range of topics in regards to budget policies, campaigns, and elections.
