Sen. Tom Daschle, the former Senate Majority Leader who is now senior policy advisor at DLA Piper, will talk about how the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections will impact the region's life science and technology communities. Topics will include:
- What does the recent election mean to you, your business and this region?
- What's next for issues such as the economy, tax policy, budget, fiscal cliff, healthcare and foreign policy?
- How do the elections and potential spending cuts and tax increases impact innovative companies?
Daschle has participated in the development and debate of almost every major public policy issue of the last three decades. In 1978, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served for eight years. In 1986, he was elected to the U.S. Senate and was chosen as Senate Democratic Leader in 1994. Daschle is one of the longest serving Senate Democratic leaders in history and the only one to serve twice as both Majority and Minority Leader.
Since leaving the Senate, Daschle has remained an active and learned voice among policymakers on issues like healthcare, climate change, renewable energy policy, financial services reform, telecommunications, international trade and taxes. Daschle is currently a senior policy advisor in DLA Piper's Government Affairs practice and serves as a member of DLA Piper's Global Board.
