PODCAST: What to Expect on Capitol Hill in a McConnell/Schumer Senate — C&M’s First 100 Days Series

November 3, 2016

In the first podcast of our “First 100 Days” series, Jim Flood, chair of Crowell & Moring’s Government Affairs Group, and Scott Douglas, senior director of policy with the firm, sit down to discuss the upcoming election and what to expect in 2017 when Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell will assume their respective leadership positions. Flood has previously served as counsel to Senator Schumer and Douglas as a finance director for Senator McConnell.

In this podcast, the two will discuss:

  • Election lead-up overview — Senate Races too close to call in as many as six toss-up states.
  • Personalities and leadership style of Senators Schumer and McConnell, and the prospects of how they might work together in 2017 and beyond.
  • Issues ripe for bi-partisan compromise – including in the areas of health care (21st Century Cures Act / NIH Innovation Fund and FDA approval and drug pricing issues), taxation reform and financial/banking infrastructure, and immigration.
