MN and Washington, D.C. Political Update

Omar Nashashibi from The Franklin Partnership will provide an insider’s view on efforts this year in the U.S. Congress to address the tax on R&D activities and preparation for major tax increases after 2025, what steps the Biden administration is taking on steel and aluminum tariffs, and which regulations such as an OSHA indoor heat rule and updates to the apprenticeship program could change how Minnesota manufacturers run their shops.
