Immigration and healthcare will take center stage in Congress this week before lawmakers adjourn for a week-long Fourth of July recess.
The House will cast at least three recorded votes this week, including one on a bill reforming medical malpractice lawsuits involving federally-subsidized care that'd been slated for a vote on the day the Republican baseball practice was attacked by a gunman and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot. It will also take up immigration bills, including Kate's Law which would strengthen penalties for unauthorized immigrants who repeatedly reenter the country and a bill to detain unauthorized immigrants convicted of drunk driving while they await deportation hearings.
The Senate is planning to vote on its revision to the House-passed American Health Care Act this week, although the timing of the vote hasn't been announced yet. On Monday it'll vote to confirm Kristine Svinicki to be a Member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Check here throughout the week to see the vote results and updates to the schedule.
Schedule subject to change. All times Eastern.
Monday after 6:30pm (all suspensions)
Tuesday after 12pm

Vote NO on the latest Senate version of healthcare. It will devastate millions and weaken the healthcare system.
Please vote no on the latest version of the health care bill, as it is devastating to Medicare, and anyone but the extremely rich. Please vote in the best interests of those that you represent. Thank you.
If our country is going to spend money , why shouldn't it be on healthcare for our citizens ?????
NO vote on current House and Senate Health bills. YES vote on Expanded Medicare for All
What does health care means to the law makers in this country? The sick and disabled are the most suffering now, I would like to see this country take serious look at how the private company are getting richer on the experience of the sick and disabled people who lay wherever a care giver leave them because they are total care laying in you own mess for hours, while greedy bosses live high.
What made America great is its ideals and democratic government. We should all have equal opportunities in our country. Sadly, we are excluding immigrants from the American dream!!! Let's protect ourselves but we should open our hearts . Healthcare should be a right in this country. Why should the rich be the only ones to have full access to healthcare!!!
Vote no on the current version of healthcare bill in the Senate
I understand that Republicans would like to follow through with their promise to repeal and replace the ACA. However, you need to remember the rest of your promise, that you would NOT cut Medicaid, that you would protect Medicare, that you would be sure to cover all Americans, that no one would loose their healthcare and that the cost would be affordable. The only way you should support the replacement of the ACA is if you follow through with your promise. The Senate bill does not keep your promise and the American people will remember.
Please vote NO on GOP & Sen McConnell's super-secret, cruel healthcare plan. It is a disgrace that they have included a significant tax break for the wealthiest Americans at the cost of discarding our most needy children, elderly, disabled and special need families! They should be ashamed!
NO LEGISLATION SHOULD BE VOTED ON UNTIL #TWITLER IS IMPEACHED AND PUT IN PRISON.
You need to vote No for trumpcare this is not a healthcare bill it is a bill that lowers taxes for the rich and Kills millions of people. Leave your hands off of ACA or give the American people a single payer system.
The current iteration of the healthcare proposal is unacceptable. It displaces millions of Americans and benefits the wealthiest. If you truly represent the common, working, middle class of your constituents you will not support this measure.
The senate healthcare bill will devastate millions of Americans. Please vote against it
Please vote no on the latest healthcare bill. It will hurt significantly those who need it the most. Thank you for your continued support in fighting the cruelty of this administration.
Do not vote for the health care bill. It will hurt to many Americans.
Vote mo on the latest healthcare propossal
Vote no on the AHCA. It is a blatant tax give away to the wealthy, health insurance companies, and pharmaceutical companies. They don't need any more tax breaks, we do the poor and middle class! Actually, we need Medicare For All. Now!
Vote NO on the Senate healthcare bill. I would especially like to remind Senator Flake of the sentiments expressed at the town hall in Mesa a few months ago regarding the Affordable Care Act and the overwhelming support for the ACA. Your constituents are paying attention and expect our Members of Congress to act in our best interests and not to further enrich the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and our most vulnerable citizens.
Vote NO on the new health care bill. It is disgraceful to give tax breaks to the rich and allow 22 million to lose health care. I vote every election and I will be watching how you vote on this bill.
Please please please vote no on the present health care bill! Come up with a way to do the following : With reference to medical coverage All government employees, president, senate, House of Representatives etc must be covered by the same insurance as those on Medicaid and Medicare. Simply expand Medicare for all! Bottom line for me It must include All Pre- exiting conditions Quality Mental Heath coverage Quality and equal Women's Health Affordable for income of the individual (such as 4 % Of income .... total out of pocket / year $2500) Coverage for RX Preventative care Choice of providers.
