Congress has returned to Washington and work on the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction ("Super Committee") is well underway. The media and pundits have provided basic information on the purpose, the members, the timetable, and what budgetary actions would be "triggered" by the Committee's inability to produce. But you need more. Your companies need more.

  • What are realistic options the Committee may propose?
  • What is the impact for your industry if the Committee doesn't act?
  • What should you consider in developing your company's strategy?

Venable has put together a team of attorneys with the experience and understanding of the agencies and Congress to help you prepare for any action or inaction. Our speakers will quickly move beyond the basics into a relevant, timely and interactive discussion on the critical aspects you need to know to understand how the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction's success or failure may affect your business at the macro and micro level.
