Senator Lamar Alexander
& CNN’s Michael Smerconish to Speak at ERIC’s Spring 2020 Policy Conference


As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP), Senator Lamar Alexander has more input over legislation that affects employers than any other lawmaker on Capitol Hill. The Senator, who sponsored the 21st Century Cures Act, will discuss the upcoming fight to end surprise medical billing, as well as recent legislation including the Lower Health Care Costs Act and the SECURE Act.


Michael Smerconish uses the perfect blend of analysis and humor to deliver engaging, thought-provoking, and balanced dialogue on today’s political arena and the long-term implications of the polarization in politics. With insider insight and amusing anecdotes, Smerconish explains how America was driven into a partisan ditch and what it will take for change.
