The new Republican-dominated administration promises to have a pro-business agenda but what changes will be made and how will they impact your business? Are corporate tax rate cuts on the horizon? What will happen to the Affordable Care Act and what do you need to know to prepare for changes to it?

For these answers and more, Lee C. Weingart, founder and president of Washington D.C. consulting and lobbying firm LNE Group, will give his insight.

In this session, you’ll hear a “Washington insider’s” perspective on important legislative and regulatory changes that will impact your business in the coming years.
You will hear about:
- Legislative and regulatory issues in the copper and red metals industry
- Changes to health care regulations from the incoming administration
