Supported by our latest insights, EY is here to help you understand and prioritize how the results of the 2020 US elections will shape the US legislative and regulatory environment on a range of issues impacting your business now, next and beyond.
The coronavirus crisis will continue to demand the attention of Congress, but congressional leaders also could face new challenges. Growing federal debt and limited state budgets will make it difficult for either party with control in Congress to advance big-ticket policies — such as enabling permanent telehealth reimbursement or major health care reforms — without also identifying budgetary offsets.
The pandemic will continue to dominate the daily lives of Americans for the near term and well into the next presidential administration. The directional trend of the country’s COVID-19 cases and the performance of the economy likely will be key factors for undecided voters going into November’s presidential election. Progress on the development of a vaccine, reopening schools and businesses, and other signs of recovery are likely to influence voter sentiment.
