A Congressional Forum: The Legislative Agenda for 2015

Kelley Drye Seminar

January 28, 2015 from 8:30 am to 12:00 am (EST)

The 2014 mid-term elections resulted in a historic win for the Republican party, and they start the 114th Congress with their largest majority in generations. The political landscape of Capitol Hill will be strongly influenced by the interaction between a Republican-led Congress and a Democratic Administration preparing another active year of executive action - a dynamic that presents opportunities for both bipartisan cooperation as well as partisan gridlock on key policy initiatives.

To learn how your industry or business may be affected, please join Kelley Drye’s Government Relations & Public Policy Practice as the group presents A Congressional Forum: The Legislative Agenda for 2015.” Kelley Drye conducts this legislative forum annually as an opportunity for our clients and friends to hear first-hand from leading policymakers about topics that will be relevant in the months ahead, including the economic outlook, tax, international trade, health care, energy and environment, labor, telecommunications, privacy, and infrastructure.
