Regardless of who prevails in the November 4th election, the next President is expected to have the opportunity to refocus and redirect policies related to energy, climate change, the environment, education, and the economy. Election season sound bites focus on their opinions on offshore drilling and gas tax holidays, but the greater impact will come through legislation.

As we near the election, this panel will examine important proposed and impending legislation, and each candidate's stance on key environmental and social policies.
