How Will A New Presidential Administration Impact Our Region?

As Joe Biden steps in as the 46th President of the United States, we look beyond inauguration day to focus on policy changes and priorities of the new Biden Administration and how they might impact us here on the Cape, Coast and Islands.

We start with Phil Duffy, President and Executive Director of the Woodwell Climate Research Center, about calls for climate response to become a factor in all government operations and policy, and what it would take to get us on track to slow a warming planet. 

Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce C.E.O. Wendy Northcross joins us to talk about ways the Biden Administration could support our local economy, post covid and beyond. 

Pam Krueger, of Wealthramp and co-host of PBS’s Money Track, joins us to discuss how the incoming administration might change personal finance, tax or investment policy.
