From Obama to Trump: Opportunities and Risks in Influencing a New Regulatory and Policy Agenda

This event has already occurred.

On Donald Trump's first day in office, he can significantly alter the landscape of executive orders, executive actions, and administrative decisions issued by President Obama. Furthermore, Congress may rescind certain rules that were finalized in the last days of the Obama administration. The reach of this authority may leave you wondering how the process works and what is at stake in your own regulatory environment.

At this webinar, members of Venable's Legislative, Political Law, and Regulatory groups discuss frequently asked questions concerning the dramatic policy changes that are likely to take place in the first 100 days of the Trump administration. Specific topics include:

  • An overview of executive orders, midnight rules, and the Congressional Review Act in the first 100 days of the next administration;
  • A discussion of specific regulations, treaty discussions, and executive orders that are subject to initial scrutiny;
  • Major changes in federal executive branch gift rules that will come into effect on January 1, 2017; and
  • Ethical and compliance considerations arising from donating to the inauguration, and hosting and offering tickets to related events.

Who should attend?

  • In-house counsel and senior officials at private, public, and nonprofit organizations
  • Government relations professionals
  • Compliance officers in regulated industries
