Steve Gordon and Erik Paulsen discuss the first economic reports from America’s reopening, Congress and the Administration’s view on additional COVID-19 legislation, last week’s signing of changes to the Paycheck Protection Program, two Executive Orders, and a new feature we’re calling ‘This and That’ – all that in Heard on the Hill. Steve Ruhlen, our appropriations expert, provides an update and predictions on the appropriations process during this election year. Steve Gordon responded to protests in his former home state of Minnesota, in Washington, D.C., and throughout most of the country with a special article he calls A Cry for Change. Dana Marston takes a deep dive into a few varied topics, including transportation funding legislation, growth in solar power, mortgage servicing, and WHO funding - and how the U.S.’s departure may impact the organization.
