The Future of Policy in Employment Discrimination, Transportation and Telecommunications
November 20, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
President-Elect Barack Obama continues to plan his transition to the Oval Office and Democratic leaders strategize to run a solidly all-blue Congress starting in January. We give you a head start on where key policies are likely to change in the future. Sally Garr joins us to talk about where employment law and the labor movement may be headed in the next Administration. Then, Greg Walden, former chief counsel for the Federal Aviation Administration, discusses the future of aviation legislation and the prospects for greater liberalization of air transportation between the European Union and the U.S. Finally, Jennifer Richter is our guest as we review the complex world of telecommunications law and the challenges that the next Congress and Administration will tackle in this policy area.
