2016 Could Be a Great Year for Indian Tribes on Capitol Hill
Forecasting the 2016 legislative agenda requires the use of something like a political Rorschach Test. Some people look at 2016 and see it as more-of-the-same—the second year of the 114th Congress. To others, 2016 looks the final, lame duck year of the Obama Administration. And to others it is a high-stakes election year with the control of the next Congress and White House up for grabs.
We think 2016 will prove to be all of these and much more.
Conventional wisdom suggests that this November’s elections will stymie most legislation until at least November, and perhaps until 2017.
