The Healthcare Connect Fund – Drinking Water Rehabilitation – Immigration Reform Updates – Trademark Clearinghouse
April 11, 2013
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us on this week’s Capital Thinking radio show with host Kevin O’Neill as he and Paul Besozzi open the program with a discussion on the Healthcare Connect Fund. The Fund, created by the Federal Communications Commission in December 2012, aims to effectively use broadband networks to improve the quality and reduce costs of health care in rural areas. Next, Kevin will be joined by Tom Curtis, Deputy Executive Director of the American Water Works Association, and Carolina Mederos to learn more about the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA). Then, Kristin Wells will return to provide an update on immigration reform as Congress gears up for a bipartisan debate regarding the controversial issues surrounding this topic. Finally, as a follow up to our previous segments on generic top level domains (gTLDs), Deborah Lodge and George Borababy will review a new program that launched by ICANN in March, "Trademark Clearinghouse," and its purpose.
