Capital Snapshot: A Monthly Overview of the Issues, Events, Timelines, and Polling Data Driving Federal Policy Decisions


Our Legislative & Public Policy team is pleased to provide the August edition of “Capital Snapshot,” a monthly summary of the issues, events, and timelines driving federal policy decisions prior to the midterm elections. This month, we look at the upcoming pertinent policy and political priorities in Congress. We also provide insight into the new reconciliation package, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, the recently-passed CHIPS and Science Act, the progress of the National Defense Authorization Act, and the status of FY 2023 appropriations. Furthermore, we take a detailed look at many of the critical congressional and gubernatorial races in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
