November 6, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
The "most important election of our life" is over - what does it mean for you? Where are we headed with a new President and a Congress with much larger Democratic majorities? This week, we begin a multi-week review of the major policy issues that will confront our newly elected leaders when the 111th Congress convenes in January. Jeff Turner is our guest to discuss all aspects of America's future energy policy agenda. Micah Green, former President of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), is on hand to talk about the impact of the economic rescue package and the coming trends in legislative efforts to rebuild the nation's financial institutions and our economy. John Jonas, the head of the healthcare policy practice at Patton Boggs, joins us for a conversation about the major new healthcare initiatives that will take center stage in the new Administration and Congress.
