Week of November 28, 2016
Congress returns from its Thanksgiving break this week to resume its lame duck session that concludes December 16. The House and Senate will both begin their weeks on Tuesday and are expected to remain in session through the rest of the week.
The House will consider a number of bills related to veterans affairs, in addition to weighing in on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and overtime pay for Secret Service agents. There are also two big ticket pieces of legislation that may get votes before the end of the week — the 21st Century Cures Act (after the Senate takes it up) and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2017.
This post will be updated with vote results as they come in throughout the week.
Schedule subject to change. All times Eastern.
Tuesday after 3:30pm (all suspensions)
Wednesday between 1pm and 6pm
Thursday after 12pm
Friday between 9am and 3pm
Tuesday after 11:30am
Thursday after 1:45pm

The fact that Congress is voting on these completely pointless bills is utterly mindless. How about we sit in session and attempt to fix the glowing racism, and completely money driven system.
We are following congress (both houses) and SCOTUS daily in our history classes. This app is awesome!
Thomas, why fire government workers? They are just people trying to earn a living to provide for their families just like all of us in the private sector
Absolutely love Countable! I wanted to develop this app but not only did you beat me to it, you did an amazing job! Hats off to the developers of Countable!
Thank you for this valuable information.
I see nothing about lowering taxes, reducing regulations, firing unneeded government workers, reducing spending or stopping domestic spying! Just more of the same crap they have been doing.
I want a congress we can trust not one that has so many conflicts of interest that every decision is suspect. Even bills that sound good have hidden agendas built in that only days of research & the special interests itself can show us. All of their collective decisions have made our society worse with a wealth distribution that's a joke & medical & prison policies that are immoral. Join Wolf PAC & do what our founding fathers wanted us to do if one or more branches got corrupted & unresponsive, go around them & fix it using the tool they left every branch to do so. Join Wolf Pac
An add...how does this reconcile with the proposal for the U.S. To veto via the Security Council counterproductive U.N. resolutions to help with Palestinian/Israelí negotiations?
