What’s Congress Voting On? Week of November 6, 2017

by Countable | 11.9.17

Congress will start its four-day work week on Monday, with both chambers taking Friday off in observance of Veterans Day.

The House will begin its week with a slate of five bills related to veterans affairs on Monday, including a bill to require a report on the status of management reorganization at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA). Tuesday will feature a mix of financial services and veterans affairs bills, including a bill reforming the definition of a "joint employer" for regulatory purposes and a bill helping veterans access organ transplants through the VA. Wednesday and Thursday will focus on a bill granting small businesses an exemption for offering stock, an overhaul of hydropower regulations, and potentially a flood insurance reform bill.

The Senate convenes Monday and will consider nominations to several positions in the Trump administration, including assistant attorney general, general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, and under secretary of transportation. Its schedule for the rest of the week is yet to be announced.
