SIIA Webinar: 2021 U.S. Political Outlook and Policy Implications

The January 5, 2021 Senate runoff elections have resulted in both Democratic candidates winning, thus leading to a 50-50 Senate with effective Democratic control of the Senate as Vice President-elect Harris will cast deciding votes.  Even though the majority is razor thin, incoming Majority Leader Schumer will have the power to set the agenda.   Democrats retained control of the House of Representatives in the November elections, albeit with a smaller majority.  So what are the implications of Democratic control of the Congress, coupled with Democratic control of the White House?

SIIA invites you to join the SIIA public policy team to hear about top policy prospects under the new Administration and the Democratically controlled House and Senate.  SIIA’s experts will cover topics ranging from privacy legislation, including health privacy, education policy, intellectual property rights, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act,  trade, emerging technology regulation, and more.  There will be ample time for Q&A.
