Setting National Priorities: Reviewing the State of the Union

President Clinton’s annual State of the Union Address is still scheduled for January 19, despite the Senate impeachment proceedings and related partisan political maneuvering. The Administration has made clear that it is intent on getting on with the business of budgeting and governing no matter how difficult the Washington political environment.

But what sort of policies are shaping this annual setting of national priorities, and how likely are meaningful reforms to result from the process? To preview the policy challenges in the final year of the 20th century, and to analyze and suggest their outcomes, Brookings will hold a briefing, based on its work, Setting National Priorities.
