US Policy Scan 2020

Policy Scan 2020 booklet

The Dentons US Public Policy Team is pleased to release its annual Policy Scan, our comprehensive overview of the policy and political landscape in 2020. We look to highlight movements across the spectrum of policy areas in the coming year. With our team’s unmatched reach, we not only look at issues in our nation’s capital but in every state capital in the union as well. We review the US Supreme Court docket and briefly profile the major cases of the term, both those still to be argued and those already argued with decisions pending. We look at trends across the globe and their impact on US policy. Finally, we delve into Election 2020 at the presidential, congressional, gubernatorial and state AG levels.

US Policy Scan 2020 takes deep dives into the turbulent political and policy waters swirling around health care, including drug pricing; energy and climate change; financial services regulation; tax cuts; foreign relations; trade; immigration; telecommunications, transportation and infrastructure; defense and homeland security; privacy; and other hotly-debated areas of government regulation and policy.

Other features include:

  • Year In Review
  • 2020 Congressional Calendars
  • Policy Review
  • A view from the water’s edge
  • Campaign 2020

And as in years past, we also include a review of state legislative activity in 2019, and an overview of pending legislation and the policy drivers that will shape state legislative and executive branch activity in 2020.

We hope that Policy Scan gives you the foundation to tackle obstacles and succeed in what is sure to be a chaotic and unprecedented year ahead.
