Understanding the process on Capitol Hill takes years of experience and know-how. It also takes a critical understanding of the important role the House and Senate leadership plays in the legislative process.
From scheduling bills for consideration on the floor to ensuring legislative provisions are incorporated in a final conference agreement, relationships with the congressional leadership can prove vital to accomplishing legislative goals. C2 GROUP has developed over the years, working relationships with Leadership for both parties and their staff.
Nelson Litterst works closely with House Republican leaders having represented the issues under the Administration of President George W. Bush. Hunter Bates formerly served Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) as his chief of staff and counsel. Michael Hanson worked with House Republican Leadership on behalf of his boss, Representative Sam Johnson, who was Deputy Whip to the then Republican majority. Patrick Robertson interacted regularly with the Senate Democratic Leadership on behalf of his former boss, Senator Jay Rockefeller, and he continues to communicate regularly with them today on behalf of clients. Becky Halkias has worked closely with the Democratic Leadership in the House, and in particular with the Majority Leaders Office.
C2 GROUP works on a regular basis with both Republican and Deomcratic leadership in both the House and the Senate and those ongoing relationships have served the interests of our clients and their unique legislative needs.
