Former Senator Olympia Snowe Joins The Bipartisan Policy Center









Maine Senator will also co-chair new Commission on Political Reform



WASHINGTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) announced today that former Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) is joining the organization as a senior fellow.  Senator Snowe will co-chair BPC's newly formed Commission on Political Reform.

"We are delighted that Senator Snowe has decided to follow her distinguished career in public service by joining with us at the Bipartisan Policy Center," said BPC's President Jason Grumet.  "We welcome her independent voice, passionate ideals, collaborative instinct and wise counsel.  BPC's new Commission on Political Reform will benefit greatly from Senator Snowe's practical knowledge and passion for effective government."

The Commission on Political Reform's diverse group of 30 American leaders will conduct a series of "National Conversations on American Unity" to understand the causes and consequences of America's partisan political divide.  The group will develop specific reforms to help Americans achieve shared national goals.

Senator Snowe was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1994 after serving sixteen years in the U.S. House of Representatives.  In 2001, she was the first Republican woman ever to secure a full-term seat on the Senate Finance Committee, and only the third woman in history to join the panel.

Founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, BPC combines politically-balanced policymaking with strong, proactive advocacy and outreach. As the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC works to address the key challenges facing the nation.

"I couldn't be more pleased and excited to join this dynamic and growing organization, whose mission is absolutely essential at this moment of unparalleled polarization in our nation, and certainly in our government," Snowe said. "Joining the Bipartisan Policy Center is a natural extension of my efforts to achieve results throughout my tenure in Congress, and it provides an ideal means for developing strategies that can garner the broad support necessary to achieve real solutions to the challenges confronting our nation."
