We are joined today by Rich Gold, who is a Partner at Holland & Knight, one of the largest lobbying firms in D.C., where he serves as a leader of the firm’s Public Policy and Regulation team.

Rich provides us with a real-time update on the status of the American Rescue Plan, the return of earmarks (now known as "community project funding"), and the next round of legislation that Congress will take up in the coming months. 

Be sure to check out Rich on Holland & Knight's new podcast - Eyes on Washington. In the inaugural episode of the podcast, Rich sits down with Quorum to discuss the return of earmarks.
