The 2014 midterm elections have shifted the political balance in Washington, and despite a handful of unresolved races still pending, Republicans are poised to control both chambers of Congress in 2015. NACo has broken down the election results and provided analysis to prepare county officials for the lame duck period and beyond.
In the coming weeks, Congress could tackle a number of issues that would impact counties including FY 2015 appropriations, Marketplace Fairness Act and the Internet Tax Freedom Act, tax extenders, and funding for the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and Secure Rural Schools (SRS) programs.
Also learn how the new Congress could address important issues like tax and entitlement reform, transportation funding and reauthorization, and regulatory issues including the “Waters of the U.S.” proposed rule.
The NACo Analysis Examines:
- How County Federal Legislative and Policy Priorities Could be Impacted by the Elections
- S. Senate Elections
- S. House of Representatives Elections
- Gubernatorial Elections
- State Legislature Races and State Ballot Initiatives
- Former County Officials in the 114th Congress
