Washington Newsletter: Kicking off a divided Congress

Kicking off a divided Congress

Andy Blocker, Global Head of Public Policy & Head of US Government Affairs

Jennifer Flitton, Senior Vice President, US Government Affairs

If the recent three-ring circus surrounding the election of the Speaker of the House is any indication, the 118th Congress looks to be one of the most bitterly divided in history. That will make it exceedingly difficult to get any meaningful legislation passed in the financial services arena — but that doesn’t mean lawmakers won’t try.

In the latest edition of our quarterly Washington Newsletter, we explore what we expect from this divided Congress, and much more. Topics include:

  • The legislative and regulatory outlook in Washington
  • A look at potential legislation that could impact financial services
  • The prospects for a “green trade war” between the EU and the US
  • Global views from our colleagues in London, Brussels and Hong Kong.
