General Session: Economic Recovery -- Great Expectations

Georgia World Congress Center Ballroom Level-Thomas Murphy Ballroom
General Session
The economy and the jobs market are on the mend after a long and grueling recession. But is the momentum strong enough to continue solid growth? Will sequestration take a bite out of 2013, and can an energized private sector offset any economic damage? Standard & Poor's Chief U.S. Economist Beth Ann Bovino will give her perspective on where the U.S. economy stands today and its prospects in the future.

  • Presiding:
  • Senator Debbie Smith, Nevada, NCSL Vice President
