February 2016 Economic Policy Evening

The first ACCF evening of 2016 centered on regulatory reform, a critical element needed for a growing economy. Is there potential for regulatory reform this Congress? Does taking an incremental approach to reform stand a better chance than pursuing a larger bill, such as the REINS Act? Given polling that indicates that a large majority of Americans favor greater transparency, what steps, if any, have been taken by the Administration and the Congress to guarantee greater regulatory transparency?

Elected officials that attended the evening included Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ), Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), Senator Angus King (I-ME), Senator Michael Rounds (R-SD) and Representative Richard Neal (D-MA).

Members of the media included Andrew Ackerman, Wall Street Journal, Elizabeth Dexheimer, Bloomberg News, James Downie, The Washington Post, Patrick Temple-West, Politico and Lydia Wheeler, The Hill.
