Throughout his presidential campaign, Joe Biden called for national reforms to police practices and civil rights. Immediately after the election, his transition highlighted Racial Equity as one of its four policy priorities. And right after his inauguration, he signed a set of initial executive actions focused generally on discrimination. Yet many questions remain as to what specific policies will come from the Biden Administration’s agencies.
What specific policies might the Biden Administration and Congress pursue in the months and years ahead? What reforms are in the federal government’s direct regulatory powers, and which will need to be pursued through federal spending or other powers? And what issues are committed to state and local governments?
To discuss these issues, the Gray Center is pleased to host the fourth event in its webinar series, “The Administrative State in Transition,” featuring a panel of experts:
