King & Spalding e-Learn: Washington Insight: What Will Election 2018 Mean for You?

On November 6th, Americans will cast their votes in what could be the most expensive nonpresidential election in our nation’s history. Control of the House of Representatives and the Senate is at stake with the winning parties setting the legislative agendas in their respective houses for the next two years. Importantly, the outcome of the election will set the stage for the 2020 presidential election campaign which unofficially begins on November 7th.

Join us as we discuss the impact of the elections, including:

  • Will Democrats win the 23 seats they need to gain majority control of the House? Will Republicans increase their numbers in the Senate? Regardless of whom is in control, what will the leadership of the House look like? 
  • What will the priorities of the next Congress be and what will they mean for your industry? Will healthcare and the ACA be on the agenda? What’s the future of tariffs? If Republicans retain control of both chambers, will there be more tax reform? 
  • How will you be prepared for the next two years?
  • Finally, what will the results of the 2018 midterm elections mean for the 2020 presidential election?

Please join the Washington, D.C.-based Government Affairs and Public Policy practice of King & Spalding LLP on Thursday, November 8, as we dissect the Election Day results and provide insight on what’s to come in the lame-duck session, in 2019, and as America gears up for Election 2020.

A number of other states will allow credit for online CLE seminars. Note that some states limit the number of credit hours attorneys may claim for online CLE activities, and state rules vary with regard to whether online CLE activities qualify for participatory or self-study credits. Unfortunately, some CLE states are currently not allowing any credit for online CLE seminars. You will need to check with your State Bar(s) to determine if your state(s) will grant CLE credit, and you might be required to submit your Certificate of Attendance.
