This Week in Congress

With less than eight work weeks before the August recess, House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Schumer continue adjusting their agenda to address emerging issues such as rising gas prices, Ukraine, and alleviate baby formula shortages. While those became must-do items, the legislation party leaders initially intended to consider, including a revamped Build Back Better spending plan and a voting rights overhaul, remain stalled. The House had no votes this week and the Senate voted on nomination votes, along with domestic terrorism legislation.
