Commercializing Low Earth Orbit (LEO): What Does this Mean?

  • 2044 Rayburn House Office Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The commercialization of space actually began in the 1970s when private telecommunication companies launched and then continued to operate satellites for profit. As time has passed momentum has slowly built for further utilization of the space environment for economic purposes by private industry. Today many talk about “commercializing LEO,” a term that covers a broad array of meaning. The panel will address various visions for, barriers to, and advantages of creating a nongovernment-based, private industry-driven economic sphere in LEO and the role of government in this process.

Energy Efficiency Jobs Are Green Jobs: Report Shows Employment Potential of Weatherizing Affordable Housing

  • 2168 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Energy efficiency improvements are the largest source of clean energy jobs in the United States and a major driver of the economy. Retrofit projects also reduce emissions that pollute our air and overheat our planet, while making homes more comfortable and more affordable through lower utility bills. Indeed, energy efficiency is the cheapest, fastest and simplest way to address energy and environmental goals while providing additional benefits to society and the economy. EEFA’s multi-state analysis shows the distribution of existing energy efficiency jobs across 12 states and their 15 largest metro areas, as well as the employment potential of the sector.

In The Era Of Streaming, Who's the Bigger Music Mogul, Jay-Z or Congress?

There are a lot of music moguls out there: Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, and Quincy Jones, just to name a few. But possibly the biggest mogul in the music industry is Congress itself. The oversight powers of Congress make it a significant player in music industry revenues. Congress has spun the music turntables with legislation several times, most recently with the Music Modernization Act (MMA). If you've ever wanted to know how Congress influences the music you stream, download, or play in your car, our panel of experts will provide an overview of this incredibly complex system. Plus, we'll ask our panel of experts which music industry mogul is bigger - Jay-Z or Congress?

What’s Next for Patient Experience Measurement?

It has become evident to many in the health policy community that the delivery of truly patient-centered care depends on eliciting, and acting upon, meaningful feedback from patients and families. It was only a decade ago that patient experience of hospital care was first routinely publicly reported via the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems, or HCAHPS survey. These metrics have become increasingly incorporated into Medicare value-based payment assessments. This congressional briefing will explore the status of patient experience measurement as the health care system continues to evolve towards a greater focus on value. RSVP

What is Impacting Disparities in Diabetes Care?

According to the CDC, Hispanics/Latinos are at a significantly higher risk for type 2 diabetes than non-Hispanic Caucasians and are twice as likely to die from the disease. The number of Hispanic/Latinos diagnosed with diabetes has soared in the past several years and increasingly more people remain at risk of developing the disease. Not only is this a health epidemic, but it also poses a serious economic issue. Diabetes costs the U.S. healthcare system, employers, and other payers hundreds of billions of dollars every year. Patients are struggling to manage their costs. RSVP

Sharkwater Extinction and the Shark Fin Trade

Sharks are in crisis due to worldwide demand for their fins: each year, fins from as many as 73 million sharks are traded on the global market. Some populations have declined by as much as 90% in recent decades, and it is estimated that up to 25% of shark and ray species are at risk of extinction. The Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act, H.R. 737, would prohibit the import, export, trade, distribution, and possession for commercial purposes of shark fins and products containing shark fins. The bill is co-led by Reps. Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan and Michael McCaul, currently with 220 cosponsors.
