Policy@Tech Speakers Series: Todd Stein

Primary tabs

Please join us for a guest lecture from Mr. Todd Stein on Wednesday, Oct 23 at 4:00PM in the Weber Space Sciences and Technology Building, room 2.  

Mr. Stein leads the government affairs/public policy practice at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC in Atlanta and is a Lecturer at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech. Before returning home to Atlanta in 2011, Todd was the Legislative Director and General Counsel for Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) during the debate and passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Todd was heavily involved in the negotiations of the bill in the US Senate, especially with regard to cost-containment measures, budgetary considerations, and the public option, and he worked with industry stakeholders to address issues of concern throughout the US Senate’s consideration of the ACA. 

This talk will begin with an historical overview of the federal government’s role in health care policy and the electoral concerns that compelled President Obama to pursue reform in the middle of the greatest recession since the great depression.  The talk will then explore how Congress wrote and passed the bill, a story that explains many of the implementation challenges that are now surfacing, and concludes with a discussion of how the bill is structured and is supposed to work in the months and years ahead. 

This is a free event, but RSVPs are appreciated.  Please email marlit.hayslett@gtri.gatech.edu if you plan to attend.
