On Tuesday, August 10, 2021, after months of debate, the Senate passed a budget resolution that includes a $3.5 trillion reconciliation package. Regional and state leaders must consider the total economic and fiscal effects of increased funding of Medicare, immigration, climate, and education programs on their communities.
We invite you to join us for “Budgeting for the Future: An Economic Impact Analysis of the $3.5 Trillion Reconciliation Package,” our upcoming webinar on Tuesday, September 7 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET).
During this presentation, we will use the REMI economic model to quantify the impacts of expanding these social programs on local, state, and regional economies.
The reconciliation budget, which would expand health care, provide access to a quality preschool and community college education, and fund climate change programs, has the potential to influence economic recovery post-pandemic.
This presentation will also use economic modeling to explore the impacts of the allocated funding on income, employment, and overall economic growth.
