Joint Employer Webinar:
On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the Wage and Hour Division will offer a public webinar to provide compliance assistance on the final Joint Employer rule covering:
House Democrats last Wednesday unveiled a $760 billion framework to fund infrastructure investments over five years. Pushing through a substantial infrastructure package in an election year is going to be tough and the framework is largely seen as an effort by Democrats to take their first steps on a top campaign priority following impeachment.
The framework notably does not specify how to pay for the increased funding and Republicans outlined their own set of priorities on Tuesday ahead of the release of Democrats’ framework, including addressing the long-term sustainability of the Highway Trust Fund, addressing infrastructure for rural communities and ensuring state flexibility for infrastructure needs.
The third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history will conclude this week after Democrats were unable to convince 4 Republicans to vote for additional witnesses and evidence for the trial last Friday. It is expected that President Trump will be acquitted of the two impeachment articles against him, making impeachment largely a campaign issue for both sides during the 2020 presidential election. It is also possible that three Senate Democrats—Sinema (Ariz.), Jones (Ala.) and Manchin (W.Va.) could vote with Republicans to acquit and provide the president with bipartisan support against his removal from office.
While impeachment will conclude, it is still possible that the House will continue to investigate the administration’s involvement with Ukraine, including a potential subpoena of former National Security Adviser John Bolton, as a way to further damage the president in the lead up to the 2020 election.
