Join us for this special December edition of our Policy Watch program where we will take a look at the year ahead and discuss the issues facing Congress – and their prospects of enacting meaningful policy initiatives – in 2018. 

Hear from former Capitol Hill operatives and policy experts as they address the following issues:

  • Will the Congress and the President work together to pass meaningful legislation around tax policy, health care reform, and infrastructure? 
  • Is there room for bipartisan compromise? 
  • How are the 2018 mid-term elections shaping up? 

We invite you to take part in an interactive discussion on these and other topics that will have an important impact on business in 2018.
