Northern Virginia Morning Briefing on Judge Gorsuch

*** NEW ***

Northern Virginia Morning Briefing on Judge Gorsuch — President Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States to replace the late Antonin Scalia.  But who is Neil Gorsuch?  What is his temperament and legal philosophy.  Come learn from two who are uniquely qualified to comment:  Dr. Henry Butler, Dean of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University and John Adams, who clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas and clerked for U.S. District Court Judge David Sentelle, as did Judge Gorsuch.  Just added to this briefing is Jamil Jaffer, who clerked for Judge Gorsuch and was a member of the team preparing Gorsuch for the Senate confirmation hearings.  The briefing will be held at 7:30 am, at JR's Stockyard's Inn, at 8130 Watson Street, in McLean.  Registration is free, but RSVPs are necessary.  To register, click here!

Time For a Sweeter Deal on Sugar

*** NEW ***

Time For a Sweeter Deal on Sugar — When it comes to the sugar trade, there is no free market.  But there should be.  And this paper lays out a proposal that could take U.S. business and consumers on the path  to a level playing field -- one that should appeal to those on the right who favor free markets, those on the left who want fewer government supports for agriculture, and budget hawks who worry about possible future costs from the sugar price support program.  Not coincidentally, it could also provide a template for making better trade deals in other areas.
