Following the 2016 elections, there are many unanswered questions about what issues will dominate the agenda for our new president and Congress. In an eight-part podcast series, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s Washington, D.C., policy professionals and attorneys discuss their perspectives on the biggest issues facing the next administration. Brownstein’s strategic advisors Barry Jackson and former Sen.

In this episode, Policy Directors Elizabeth Gore and Brian Wild discuss efforts to prioritize investments in infrastructure under the new administration and the Republican Congress, possible tensions it could cause with the right’s usual fiscal conservatism and the likelihood of bipartisan support.
