WEBINAR: Flood or Drought? A Discussion of the Election’s Potential Legislative Impacts on the Water Sector

President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump could mean big changes for federal treatment of issues affecting water service providers, as well as how such issues are addressed in California, where Governor Newsom will presumably now have an ally in the White House. At both the state and federal levels, legislators are still working to address the impact of COVID-19 on public health and the economy, while pursuing existing policy goals that may have been put on hold due to the challenges created by the pandemic.

To navigate these new changes, please join us on December 3, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. PT for a complimentary webinar, "Flood or Drought? A Discussion of the Election’s Potential Legislative Impacts on the Water Sector."

Our panel will discuss the recent election, its impact on federal and state water issues and what we might anticipate for 2021, including:

  • Congressional election results and Committee changes;
  • Likely focus of Congressional legislation and policy;
  • Administration emphasis for first 100 days and first year;
  • Administration's longer-term goals and priorities;
  • California statewide election results’ impacts on public policy making;
  • The pandemic’s impacts on policy making in California; and
  • COVID-19 financial pressures on water suppliers.

Please click here to register, and we invite you to submit your questions for our panel prior to or during the webinar so that we may address your top concerns during the session.
