73 Days: Government in Transition
Government Matters takes a deep dive into the critical 73-day period between election day and inauguration.
Modern presidential transitions involve thousands of political appointees, extensive briefing exercises for new cabinet officials, and a new first family in the White House.
Planning for all that change started more than two years ago. The hand-off could determine how ready the incoming administration will be to govern on day one.
The first Government Matters documentary, “73 Days: Government in Transition,” was produced by Colby Hochmuth. It includes interviews with top federal officials from presidential administrations past and present.
