In this week’s Heard on the Hill, Steve Gordon, Erik Paulsen, and Todd Smith cover the process, negotiations, and progress toward the next COVID-19 recovery legislation. They share an interview with Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), and provide updates on bringing pharmaceutical manufacturing back to the U.S., Tuesday evening’s Kansas Republican primary election – the first battle for control of
the U.S. Senate – and they report on the race for a COVID-19 vaccine in an update that’s appropriately titled ‘The Cavalry Is REALLY coming.’
Al Jackson brings us up to date on defense issues, while Ramona Lessen reports on a hearing held before the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on the PACT ACT and Section 230, the law that helped create the Internet and an examination of proposed reforms.
