WHAT’S TRENDING THIS WEEK

  • Legislative negotiations: The House passed a bill to avoid a government shutdown and economic default, but Republican leaders in the Senate are united in opposition to the legislation. Meanwhile, negotiations around the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and the Build Back Better Act are ongoing, with President Biden meeting with stakeholders to ensure they see key components of his agenda through.
  • Climate crisis: As part of President Biden’s ongoing efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, the Environmental Protection Agency has finalized a rule to reduce the use of hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, by 85% over the next 15 years — one of the most consequential climate actions taken by the federal government in years.
