Texas Archive of the Moving Image Summary

Produced by the National Education Radio and Television Center, The Changing Congress is a nine-part television series looking at the issues confronting federal legislators. Part 3, entitled “The Rules of the Game,” focuses on the long and sometimes informal process of passing legislation through the houses of Congress. To do so, the broadcast follows Congressman Jim Wright as he attempts to push a bill on water pollution. Wright meets with other members of the House Committee on Public Works and hosts a dinner at his home in Washington, D.C., before finally getting his bill to be put to a vote on the House floor.
