Crystal balls are famously cloudy when asked to project what comes next in Washington DC. The legislative goals of the Biden Administration and the Democratic Congress are clear: transformative investment across all policy spectrums. The vehicles to reach that goal will be passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, passage of a Human Infrastructure Bill (via reconciliation) and passage of the annual Appropriations bills. So we know the goal. We know the methods used to reach those goals. What we don’t know is how smooth the trip will be for this solely Democratically-supported effort. We do know that NOTHING is smooth in DC these days.
What follows is our attempt to get you up to speed on what will be on the agenda this fall in Washington DC. A little something to ease you back in from those summer nights.
Wishing you and yours a healthy and safe autumn.
