Senate Democrats are bracing for a busy July work period as leadership presses forward on a revival of the budget reconciliation process. After releasing an updated version of the drug pricing title last week, additional pieces of the new filibuster-proof bill are expected to be released in the coming days and weeks ahead so that the Parliamentarian can begin the “Byrd bath” review to ensure compliance with the Senate’s budgetary rules. These policies include tax hikes on high-income earners to shore up the solvency of Medicare and extending the Affordable Care Act (ACA) premium subsidies, as well as other climate, energy, and tax proposals. According to intel from Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is hopeful to get the updated bill on the floor ahead of the August break. However, it remains to be seen whether the deal can garner the support of the entire Democratic caucus in both chambers.

In an article for The Hill, TRP’s Jason Rosenstock offered commentary on the political dynamics of the Biden administration’s pending financial regulatory nominees. With several vacancies the Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Rosenstock pointed out that the looming 2022 midterm elections places additional pressure on Senate Democrats to fill these positions should Republicans take control in 2023. “2022 is going to be a very busy year on the administrative agency level in large part because if the Democrats lose control of the House and Senate in 2023 it changes a little bit of a dynamic,” said Rosenstock. “It just makes it a little bit harder to move their agenda. So I think this is the year to pounce, so to speak.”
For the fourth year in a row, TRP founding partners Chris Lamond and Andy Rosenberg were named as Top Lobbyists in The Hill’s annual list for 2021.
