DETROIT (AP) — Two former U.S. senators are hosting a conference in Washington, D.C., about Congressional oversight of classified programs.

The Levin Center at the Wayne State University Law School in Detroit is presenting the half-day event Tuesday at the Russell Senate Office Building. Former Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan and former Republican Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana are hosting.

The conference is the first for the newly established Levin Center and is titled "Congressional Oversight of Classified Programs — 40 Years after the Church Committee." It will review changes that followed the 1975 committee and Congress' ability to oversee classified programs.

The Church Committee, led by Sen. Frank Church of Idaho, investigated federal intelligence operations and spying on anti-war activists.

A live stream of the event is available.
