This Week in Congress
Last Thursday, Congress passed a continuing resolution to fund the government until December 3, 2021. Additionally, last week the House voted 365-51 for a 30 day extension of surface transportation programs in light of the delayed vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill. Last Saturday, Speaker Pelosi set a new deadline of October 31st for the House to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill. The House is not in session this week beginning a two-week committee work period and the Senate debated and voted on the federal debt limit.
