Policymaker Speaker Series: Featuring US Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)
The federal government is intervening in unprecedented ways in every sector of the American economy as Congress and the White House respond to the impact of COVID-19. Yet, at this critical moment, the realities of social distancing have made it more challenging to communicate directly with policymakers who want to understand how this crisis has harmed industries and businesses across the country. Arnold & Porter is pleased to host the Policymaker Speaker Series to hear directly from national leaders and decisionmakers about how our country can and must respond to these unprecedented challenges.
During this webinar, US Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) joined members of our Legislative & Public Policy team, various clients and friends to discuss the Congressional response to the COVID-19 pandemic; massive unemployment; business closures across the country; and widespread protests against systemic racism, the police and historic economic inequality.
Representative Blumenauer is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, chairman of its Trade subcommittee and a member of its Health subcommittee.
