What To Expect From Congress in September

With summer having come to a close on labor day and the September 30th fiscal years end trailing right behind it, we are entering the last handful of weeks of possible congressional action ahead of the midterm elections.

As the House Heads Out for Recess, Plenty of Work Remains on Appropriations

Appropriations discussions are wrapping up as both chambers adjourn for August recess, albeit a shortened one for the Senate.
