Sen. Byron L. Dorgan
Chairman, DPC

The Democratic Policy Committee (DPC) was established in January 1947, after President Harry Truman signed legislation to create majority and minority party policy committees in the Senate.  Since its creation sixty years ago, the DPC has served Senate Democrats by providing research and legislative support, developing policy proposals, publishing reports on important legislation and policy issues, tracking roll call votes, holding hearings and forums, and differentiating Democratic policy positions from Republican positions.
