What's Congress Voting On? Week of June 26, 2017

by Countable | 6.26.17

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.
