This Week in Congress

Congress returned this week starting a three-week legislative stretch with the House debating a $33 billion aid funding package for Ukraine, legislation to bolster U.S. competitiveness, along with legislation allowing the right of House staffers to unionize.  Additionally, the House voted on legislation that would expand federal benefits for firefighters, allow TSA employees to receive the same compensation structure and collective bargaining rights as other federal employees, and a ten-year reauthorization of the Community Service Block Grant, which supports programs to alleviate and reduce poverty.  The Senate focused on legislation that would codify the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide, but the Senate will not meet the filibuster threshold to allow the legislation to proceed to a final vote.
