Senator Collins to Be Awarded Publius Award from Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress

Publius Award recognizes bipartisan leadership in Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C.-During a ceremony in Washington, D.C. tonight, U.S. Senator Susan Collins will be presented with the prestigious Publius Award from the Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress. Senator Collins and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) will be recognized for their bipartisan leadership in Congress.

The Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress was founded in 1965, inspired by President Eisenhower's call for an organization to preserve the lessons of history for his successors. It is a nonpartisan, nonprofit policy and education organization that applies strategic thinking and the leadership lessons of history to critical national challenges and opportunities. The Publius Award draws its name from Founder Fathers Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison, who authored the Federalist Papers under the collective pseudonym, Publius. Past recipients include President Gerald Ford, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Maine Senator George Mitchell, and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
