Consulting’s Hodges and Donatelli Debate Before Charlotte Business Group
Former South Carolina Gov.
Jim Hodges and federal Executive Vice President
of McGuireWoods Consulting engaged in a spirited debate before nearly 45
members of the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Retail Affinity Group in
Charlotte, North Carolina, on March 7.
Jim and Frank discussed federal legislative issues and offered differing
analyses and predictions regarding healthcare, tax reform, immigration,
trade and infrastructure funding. Frank was generally supportive of the
Trump administration’s agenda, while Jim urged caution and felt the changes
advocated were far too abrupt and far-reaching. Both speakers agreed,
however, that Washington was finally poised to break gridlock and legislate
on many of the key issues facing America.
One attendee remarked that hearing the issues debated, along with a
discussion of the process and potential outcomes, clarified her thinking on
how her company should respond to these emerging legislative developments.
