Net Neutrality – Immigration Reform – International Trade
November 20, 2014
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Last week, President Obama advocated for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt the “strongest possible” rules for Net Neutrality. This week, host Kevin O’Neill will first speak with Jack Nadler on the origin of the Net Neutrality debate and foreseeable actions that may come from FCC and the corresponding reactions from Congress. Next, Clark Kent Ervin will discuss the contentious issue of immigration reform, for which the President is set to unveil his Executive Action on November 20. Finally, Frank Samolis will talk about upcoming international trade developments in the new Republican Congress, including possible movements on signature issues such as the Trade Promotion Authority and major agreements currently under negotiation such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, as well as a possible Bilateral Investment Treaty with China.
