Chris McCannell Mentioned in Law360 Article “Biden Win Could Spark Revamp Of Opportunity Zone Program”

Washington, DC – October 20, 2020 – Senior Government Affairs Consultant Chris McCannell, of GrayRobinson’s Washington, DC office, was mentioned in the Law360 article “Biden Win Could Spark Revamp Of Opportunity Zone Program.” The article discusses how Democratic lawmakers are rallying behind former Vice President Joe Biden's drive to reshape requirements for opportunity zones, which could spark a revamp of the program to deliver more benefits to low-income residents should Biden win the election. McCannell, adviser to the Opportunity Funds Association, which represents funds with stakes in opportunity zones, expressed to Law360 “If Democrats control the House and Senate and there's a Democratic administration, it could get some traction. But this could create complexity for current and future projects at a time when investment is needed to recover from the [COVID-19] pandemic.”
