Tom Suozzi’s (D-NY-3) special election victory and subsequent swearing in, and President Biden’s State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. Additionally, we share updates on developments, outlook, and priorities across a variety of public policy and legislative areas, including (1) the status of FY24 supplemental aid and border security provisions; (2) the National Defense Authorization Act and Department of Defense; (3) tax; (4) financial services; (5) artificial intelligence; (6) energy and environment; (7) education; (8) health care; and (9) California politics and policy.
