"How the Economic Stimulus Bill Impacts You and Your Business"
February 19, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
The American Recovery and Restoration Act is a historic $787 billion package of tax cuts and spending that affects every citizen. We interview Nick Allard, Co-Chairman of the Public Policy practice group at Patton Boggs LLP, about the stimulus package and how it impacts your business. Next, Micah Green, a tax policy partner at Patton Boggs, talks about the tax changes in the bill and the executive compensation rules that will influence the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Then, Jeff Turner, an energy policy partner at Patton Boggs, discusses how the bill sets the framework for a new energy infrastructure and previews future policy battles that may transform our nation's economy. Finally, we chat with Martie Kendrick, a healthcare policy partner at Patton Boggs, about the changes in healthcare coming as a result of the stimulus bill and how it will create momentum for further Congressional and Administration action on healthcare policy reforms.
