Hot Topics in Public Policy: The State of State Affairs
Monday, October 30,12:00 pm-1:00 pm$5
The Government Affairs Industry Network (GAIN) is pleased to invite you to our upcoming panel on “The State of State Affairs.” This is the fifth panel in GAIN’s “Hot Topics in Public Policy” series, which focuses on issues currently — or soon-to-be — moving through the 115th Congress. These panels bring together thought leaders in the industry to discuss the current state-of-play, providing insights and intel to help attendees stay ahead of the game in the policy discussions heating up DC.
State officials and policymakers have more impact than ever on federal issues. Join GAIN for a panel on October 30th as we explore the relationship between federal and state policymaking and discuss critical issues within states, including:
- Changes to ACA and its impact on state insurance markets
- State Medicaid funding, particularly for those states who have expanded coverage
- Changing federal education standards and state budget funding
- Budget issues – funding for programs, particularly healthcare, education, corrections, and transportation – how does this affect states’ requests for federal funding and policy changes?
More details, including location and panelists, to be announced in the coming weeks.
