Patrick Robertson reports on the status in Congress of the Biden Administration’s proposal for COVID relief, and well as their plans for infrastructure and immigration reform in “Washington Whispers.” Todd Smith and Congressman Erik Paulsen report on the Administration’s healthcare wish list. Al Jackson provides his monthly defense update, and Ramona Lessen provides an overview of yesterday’s Senate hearing on the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
We received a significant number of requests asking us to reshare our Total Spectrum Spotlight interview with Senator Mark Kelly, and we are pleased to oblige.
Please mark your calendars - Congressman Erik Paulsen and Patrick Robertson will present a 2021 Outlook from Capitol Hill in a March 3rd webinar from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM MST as part of the Arizona Chamber’s Virtual Leadership Series. Erik Paulsen served in Congress from 2009 to 2019 where he was a leading member of the tax writing Ways and Means Committee. He was also the chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, co-chairman of the House Medical Technology Caucus, co-chairman of the Digital Trade Caucus, and co-chairman of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Caucus. Patrick Robertson is a licensed attorney who served as the assistant chief of staff for Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) before beginning a very successful career in the private sector where he uses his vast experience working on issues of tax, energy, telecommunications, trade, and transportation.
We will be back on March 10th for the next issue of This Week in Washington and the next Total Spectrum Spotlight. Stay well.
