Vulnerabilities in the security of the U.S. power grid -- from the high-profile attack on a California substation to ongoing cyber incursions -- has made protecting the grid a key policy issue for both the security and energy communities. Recent hacking incidents against major retailers, Hollywood, and the military's social media accounts are only increasing concerns about the ability to protect America's critical systems.

On Wednesday, February 4, join The Hill for a forum on grid resiliance and security. Leaders from Congress and the Obama Administration will discuss the role new energy technologies are playing in modernization, as well as steps for protecting a 21st Century power grid.

As state and federal budgets get tighter, spending on mental illness has dramatically fallen -- contributing to significant gaps in America’s mental health safety net. Cash-strapped Medicaid programs bear a large part of the burden of caring for those with mental illness and these programs’ budget troubles are only expected grow.

 

On Thursday, February 26, join The Hill for a timely and thought-provoking conversation of the economic and human consequences of cost-cutting policies that limit access to treatment.

The Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio, 3rd Floor, 555 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
