This article argues a central change in the composition of the American state has taken place in Congress. Since the volatile 1960s, Congress has undergone two periods of reform - one in the 1970s and another in the 1990s - that resulted in profound changes to the institution. Congress also underwent significant changes as a result of developments in external institutions and in the electorate.
