The outcome of the 2020 race can be interpreted in a handful of ways: Republicans are touting it as a victory as they are poised to maintain a majority in the Senate and made gains in the U.S. House. Democrats, despite losing seats in the House, are optimistic after holding on to a slim majority while their presidential candidate is projected to win the White House. With neither party likely to claim a decisive victory across all branches of government, what policy changes can the chemical industry look for under a Biden presidency?

Join Editor-in-Chief Leah Askarinam of the National Journal’s Hotline as she discusses why the coalitions for the Republicans and Democrats are far from being clearly defined ahead of 2022 and 2024 and what that could mean for the chemical industry.
