From the Hill: Economic and Legislative Updates Impacting The Council of Industry Members

Infrastructure, reconciliation, vaccine mandates, sustainability.  Legislation and regulation is coming out of Washington DC at a rapid pace.

Join former Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and alliantgroup National Managing Director, Dean Zerbe, as he shares exclusive insight on the latest legislation and regulations you need to know about, and what might be in store for the rest of 2021, 2022 and beyond.

About Dean


Dean Zerbe is National Managing Director for alliantgroup and is based out
of alliantgroup’s Washington, D.C. office. In this role, Dean is responsible for,
among other things, monitoring tax-related legislative activity in Washington

Grassley (R-IA) on tax legislation. During his time on the Finance Committee,
Dean was intimately involved with almost every major piece of tax legislation
that was signed into law – including the 2001 and 2003 tax reconciliation bills
(representing two of the largest tax cuts in the nation’s history); the JOBS bill in
2004 (corporate tax reform); and the Pension Protection Act.
