This week former U.S. Sen. Kit Bond, a Thompson Coburn partner, will participate in the Congressional Research Service (CRS) Centennial Symposium in Washington, DC.

CRS asked Bond to participate in the symposium’s economic panel because of his experience and seniority in the U.S. Senate, where he worked on issues important to American companies and our nation. Bond served as the former Chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee, and on the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee. He was also Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a senior member on critical committees like the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Bond will be joined by Peter Orszag, former director of the Office of Management and Budget, and former Members of Congress to speak and participate in a roundtable discussion on the panel titled, “America’s Place in the Global Economy: What’s Next.”

During his remarks, Bond will address the reality of globalization and how Congress must tackle the issues impacting our nation’s competitiveness in the global economy, including the need to enact a pro-growth trade agenda, reform our punitive tax code, and address over-regulation that stifles creativity and innovation.

July 16, 2014, marks the 100th anniversary of the enactment of the legislation that provided for the creation of CRS. The CRS provides Congress non-partisan research, analysis, and advice on the legislative process.
