Jade West, Chief Government Relations Officer, NAW

We are almost half-way through 2021 and few pundits called this year right. Few predicted Democrats would win two Senate seats in January run-off elections in Georgia, giving them control of a 50-50 tied Senate. Most predicted Democratic gains in 2020 House elections, but Republicans gained 9 seats, leaving Speaker Pelosi with a bare 9-vote majority, the smallest in years. The Congressional session started with hopes that President Biden’s reputation as a deal maker and the narrow Democratic margins in Congress would bring legislators to pursue bipartisan agreements. Those hopes were short-lived, as Democrats used the “reconciliation” process to enact an almost-2-trillion-dollar Covid relief bill with no GOP input or votes. Now before Congress are two additional bills proposing about $4 trillion in spending and about $2 trillion in tax increases. Republicans immediately announced opposition to both, and Democrats announced they would again use “reconciliation” to pass both without GOP support. But first the Democrats have to garner the support of all 50 Democratic senators, which is proving difficult. Jade West will share insights on what the rest of the Congressional session will bring, and how will events this year impact the 2022 mid-term elections.


For over 20 years, Jade West was a staple in the U.S. Senate. For the past 10 years, Jade has helped educate lawmakers on how certain legislative policies could impact true economic engines such as wholesaler-distributors. From stopping the repeal of LIFO, to tax and labor initiatives, Jade has been out front and leading the charge on Capitol Hill to benefit the entire $6.0 trillion industry that is wholesale distribution.
