Congress could run out of time to pass these bills as election season nears

May 30, 2019, S&P Global

Muftiah McCartin is quoted in S&P Global regarding Congress’s push to make progress on legislation before the unofficial deadline of August. Ms. McCartin says, "These issues that are really tough issues, where you have Republicans and Democrats who are really trying to find a way forward, you will begin to see that break down once we get into a contentious election season, so that's why there is a sense of urgency. It's really conventional wisdom that August will be the cutoff for when we enter this contentious period." She adds, "Democrats and Republicans are engaged, and they're trying to get to a collaborative solution. I think that you're always going to have that longstanding philosophical issue on the challenge of preemption, and that's going to color that collaboration."
