CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Congressional-presidential relations will be the topic of a Hoxie Forum at the University of Northern Iowa Monday, Oct. 27.

Former U.S. representatives, Harold Volkmer and Bill Goodling, will be the featured speakers on a panel discussing 'Congressional-Presidential Relations: From the Cold War to the War on Terror,' from 3 to 6 p.m., in Seerly Hall, Room 115. Volkmer served as a Democratic representative for Missouri from 1977 to 1997 and Goodling served as a Republican representative for Pennsylvania from 1975 to 2001. The panel also will include Pita Agbese and Steven Lobell, UNI professors of political science, and Christopher Rossi, professor of law at the University of Iowa.
