In POLITICO, TRP’s Rosenberg Offers Commentary on Next Pandemic Relief Package

In yesterday’s edition of POLITICO’s Transition Playbook — a leading news beat on the transfer of power in Washington, D.C. — TRP’s Andy Rosenberg prognosticated the next round of COVID-19 relief aid for what is soon to be a unified Democratic government. With the Democrats set to control the White House and both chambers of Congress following victories in the Georgia Senate runoff elections, Rosenberg explained that this sweeping change of leadership is an opportunity for the President-elect to clinch policy wins on his top “rescue and recovery” priorities. “The expectations and assumptions about what was possible a week ago are completely obsolete,” said Rosenberg.

In CQ, TRP’s Rosenstock Forecasts Senate Dems’ Banking Agenda

In an article for CQ, TRP’s Jason Rosenstock offered commentary on the Senate Democrats’ Banking Committee agenda for the 117th Congress. With Democrats in control, Rosenstock pointed out that the Biden administration will be able to staff up significantly quicker and with more liberal nominees compared to what was forecasted under a GOP-controlled Senate. Also on the agenda, he expects Senate Democrats to use the Congressional Review Act (PL 104-121) to rescind regulations finalized by the Trump administration in the last 60 legislative days. However, given the 50-50 margin in the upper chamber, Rosenstock aptly stated that centrist senators on the committee will affect the scope of Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) agenda, leading to smaller, more targeted proposals on the issues Chairman Brown cares about.

Capitol Hill Update

Congress formally certified President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election following a chaotic day on Capitol Hill. The process was delayed after rioters broke into the Capitol building, forcing an hours-long lockdown that pushed the certification process into the early morning hours. Despite repeatedly stating that he will not concede the election and supported GOP lawmakers’ efforts to overturn results in several states, President Donald Trump issued a statement after the certification saying “there will be an orderly transition” to the incoming Biden administration. The President-elect will be sworn into office on Wednesday, January 20.

Last week saw the Georgia Senate results came in, and a seditious insurrection waged on the Congress by devoted followers of the President. Both will have significant impacts on the politics and policies this year, and while much has been written about the attack on the Capitol, we want to spend a moment discussing the near and long term impacts of unified Democratic control of the Federal government.
