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 September 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 President Joe Biden’s recently-announced student loan forgiveness plan, the progress of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and the status of FY 2023 appropriations. Furthermore, we provide an overview of the current midterm elections landscape, including what trends and polls are revealing about prospects for both major political parties just two months away from Election Day.
