This Week in Congress

Congress returns this week for a five-week stretch, with Democratic leadership under heavy pressure to deliver on key priorities before the midterm elections.  Congress faces a full agenda with FY23 Appropriations Bills; supplemental funds for pandemic aid; restaurant relief; additional funds for Ukraine; legislation on semiconductor manufacturing; and a possible rewrite of the “Build Back Better” package. The Senate will kick off the work period with votes on nominees for the Federal Reserve and Federal Trade Commission, some of the more than 100 Biden administration nominations are awaiting action.
