King & Spalding e-Learn: Washington Insight: How Will the New House Democratic Majority Affect Your Interests?

Last November’s midterm elections gave Democrats control of the House of Representatives, a status they have not held since 2010.  The majority party in the House of Representatives has virtually total control to determine the House agenda and the committee process. Thus, this session of Congress promises to be a stark departure from the past eight years of Republican control, and particularly from the past two years of unified government.

How will this affect your interests?  What can you do to be prepared?  How can you best position your interests in the new environment?

For a deep dive into what to expect in the 116th Congress under Democratic control of the House, please join members of King & Spalding’s Government Advocacy & Public Policy group on Wednesday, January 23 at 12:30 P.M. for an interactive webcast.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Priorities of the House Leadership
  • Healthcare and the Future of the ACA
  • Congressional Investigations and Subpoena Power
  • Tax Policy and the 2017 Tax  Cuts and Jobs Act
  • Prescription Drug Pricing
  • Energy Taxes
  • Environmental Policy and the New Select Committee on the Climate Crisis
  • The Influence of the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus

The content of this program is considered "Transitional" and "Non-Transitional". We will apply for CPD points with the Law Society of London.

All participants who certify that they attended the entire session and wish to receive CLE credit will receive a Universal Certificate of Attendance.

In addition, if a particular program qualifies for CLE credit in Georgia and/or Texas, King & Spalding will submit credits for participants to the Georgia and Texas bars. California and New York attorneys will receive their state-specific Certificate of Attendance to use when reporting compliance to their state bar. If Virginia approves a program for CLE credit, we will e-mail Virginia participants a Virginia Certificate of Attendance to report credit.

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.
