WASHINGTON D.C., February 13, 2013 – Patton Boggs today released “The State of the Union in 2013,” a concise but highly substantive analysis of President Barack Obama’s 2013 State of the Union address to Congress and the nation, delivered the evening of Tuesday, February 12, 2013.
Featuring contributions from attorneys and policy professionals representing both sides of the aisle and offering years of experience in the Washington political arena, “The State of the Union in 2013” offers a narrowly focused analysis of the most important areas discussed by the President in this year’s State of the Union address.
This year’s analysis leads with a discussion of President Obama’s comments on sequestration and government funding, including an analysis of the potential for tax reform to emerge from debates spawned by those issues. The analysis also discusses the President’s positions on immigration reform and energy legislation, the latter of which is especially relevant given the focus on climate change in his acceptance speech.
