Wolters Kluwer and BloombergBNA's editorial teams have built their editorial credibility on comprehensive and exacting tracking of US regulatory changes. The incoming Trump administration appears to be poised to shake up the established regulatory framework through both deregulation and statutory repeal. I reached out to executives at Wolters Kluwer and BloombergBNA to find out how they are preparing for the Trump Dereguation Agenda. Although both publishers suggest that preparation for this transition of government is "business as usual," both publishers have issued special reports. In addition, Wolters Kluwer is planning some major editorial enhancements to existing products that will make tracking regulatory changes easier.
Dean Sonderegger, Wolters Kluwer's VP& GM, Legal Markets & Innovation provided a statement from the WK editorial team:
|Wolters Kluwer Regulation Redliner|
|WK Standard Fed Plus -" Point in Time" Changes|
Here is a description of the product from the upcoming press release:
"Standard Fed Plus is a first-to-market, centralized, online product that helps tax professionals understand U.S. federal tax law changes. Standard Fed Plus provides point-in-time analysis that enables legal professionals to see legal tax changes in context, with redlining capability to visually show where changes have occurred at a point-in-time or to compare differences in the laws, regulations, guidance or commentary between points-in-time. It also includes a calendar feature to help attorneys more accurately and quickly research changes in the tax law back to 1986 and on a weekly basis going forward. The exclusive redlining feature of the Standard Fed Plus provides tax attorneys with a solution that increases the accuracy, efficiency and speed of legal tax research to enable them to more quickly understand legal tax changes and provide more accurate tax advice to clients.
The BloombergBNA Approach: Outlook Reports
I also asked BloombergBNA's new President Scott Mozarsky if Bloomberg BNA was making any special preparations for the Trump Administration. According to Mozarsky "Bloomberg BNA’s D.C.-based bureau of reporters and editors will closely track Trump administration regulatory and enforcement changes in all the key federal agencies. In fact, before the election we were reporting on what a Trump administration might do moving forward. "
