OTA doesn’t get enough credit for the variety, timeliness, and impact of its work.

This paper is part of Lincoln's Technology Assessment Symposium, which was made possible with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The paper was authored by Kathryn Wagner Hill and edited by Adam Keiper and Elizabeth Foz. Dr. Hill is the director of the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Advanced Governmental Studies. She was an OTA congressional fellow from 1985 to 1986 and served as an OTA analyst and project director from 1985 to 1990. She is the coauthor, with Benjamin Ginsberg, of Congress: The First Branch (Yale University Press, 2019).
