This Week in Washington, Georgia Edition - May 28, 2020

The Senate is out of Washington on a planned home state work week. The House of Representatives is in session, although 70 members of the House have filed public letters with the House Clerk asking to vote by proxy so they would not have to travel to Washington during the public health emergency. Steve Gordon, Erik Paulsen, and Todd Smith talk about the mood in Washington in this most unusual year, the first signs of economic recovery, the next major COVID-19 legislation and more in Heard on the Hill. With his years of experience working with the Pentagon, defense contractors, and defense appropriation legislation, Al Jackson, Strategic Consultant to Total Spectrum, has filed a report on defense and defense appropriations issues. Jesse Weathington gives us a look at the latest in Georgia with his Gold Dome Report. As always, make sure to check out the Infographs for an in-depth look at current hot topics.

COVID-19 continues to impact our families, our communities, our state, and our country. It created a health crisis, which in turn created an economic crisis – and Washington’s necessary response to both may indeed cause a fiscal crisis. Steve Gordon, Erik Paulsen, and Todd Smith bring you up to date on how the Administration and Congress continue to respond to these crises in “Heard on the Hill.” Jesse Weathington gives us a glimpse at what may be a "new normal" as well as the most recent economic figures in Georgia with his “Gold Dome Report”.

This Week in Washington, Georgia Edition - April 30, 2020

April 30, 2020

Welcome to our second Georgia edition of This Week in Washington. Thank you for your interest in politics and policy from the Peach State to the Potomac. It is a pleasure to welcome former Congressman Erik Paulsen to Total Spectrum and to This Week in Washington. Those of you who met Erik when he represented Minnesota in Congress and served on the House Ways and Means Committee know of both his intellect and uncommon common sense. There has been a great amount of discussion about the significant amount of our healthcare needs that are manufactured overseas. A bipartisan group of Senators passed a bill – which ultimately became part of the CARES Act – that asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to assess the vulnerability and dependence that overseas production of our healthcare products puts on our country. Steve Gordon and Erik Paulsen interviewed Joe Carson, a supply side expert, to get his thoughts and ideas. It’s a lengthy Q&A, but worth the read. In Heard on the Hill, Todd Smith and Steve Gordon write about our health crisis, our economic crisis, and our fiscal crisis and how Congress and the Administration are reacting to them. Jesse Weathington gives us a look at the latest in Georgia with his Gold Dome Report. As always, make sure to check out the Infographs for an in-depth look at current hot topics.
