“The Wheels of Change – Are they Grinding to a Halt?”
July 30, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
The wheels of change are grinding to a halt as Congress struggles to pass healthcare reform on the timeline President Obama wanted. We discuss the latest details of the negotiating process and what it could mean for you with leading healthcare industry lobbyists. Then, we talk about the intersection of politics and technology with David Almacy, the former White House Internet Director, who will address how the policy wars of Washington are being fought on new digital battlefields. Ed Bolen, the President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association, is our guest to talk about the current state of the industry. Finally, straight from this week's headlines, lawyer Michael Guiffre is fighting to prevent the federal government from locating its new $700 million research facility for highly infectious pathogens in a tornado-prone section of Kansas.
