Once a new President takes office, the mid-term election can be a challenging time. With 435 Congressmen, one-third of the Senate, 36 governorships, and over 6,000 state legislative seats being contested on November 6, 2018, the impact may be substantial. Historically, the president’s party loses seats in Congress, and this year will be no different. Control of one or both houses of Congress is at stake, and thus the course of the remainder of President Trump’s first-term agenda. Early indications from polling and election analysts are that the Democratic Party will make significant gains at all levels.
The devastation and dislocation caused by Hurricane Harvey and the prospect of additional extreme weather events has cast industrial resilience in stark relief. Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana are home to a high concentration of chemical manufacturing and energy production, refining and distribution. The Gulf Coast has experienced a succession of 100, 500 and, some say, 1000 year flood events in recent years. There is abundant scientific evidence that long term changes in climate and weather patterns have the potential to intensify storms and their impact on this manufacturing infrastructure well into the future.
