WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patton Boggs today released "The State of the Union in 2014," a succinct yet substantial analysis of President Barack Obama's 2014 State of the Union address to Congress and the nation, delivered the evening of Tuesday, January 28, 2014.
"The State of the Union in 2014" details key agenda items and priorities for the remainder of the year, as laid out by the President in his fifth State of the Union address. These include efforts to expand equality of opportunity for all Americans, the possible veto of an Iran sanctions bill that would derail the negotiations underway to resolve what he referred to as "one of the leading security challenges of our time without the risk of war," and his intention to move more initiatives by Executive Order, where possible.
The analysis features insights from Patton Boggs attorneys and policy professionals representing both sides of the aisle, all of whom possess considerable experience in the Washington political arena. Patton Boggs publishes an extensive analysis following each presidential election and State of the Union address. The entire State of the Union analysis can be viewed and downloaded at no cost here.
