2024 Priority Legislation

In “D.C. speak or parlance a ‘must pass’ bill” is a measure, considered vitally important, that must be passed and enacted by Congress to continue a necessary function of government before its expiration.  Besides federal appropriations, Congress faces multiple deadlines in 2024 on major pieces of legislation that some consider “must pass.”

  • The Federal Aviation Administration authorities expire on March 8, 2024.
  • The National Security Agency’s electronic surveillance authorities, which always prove to be controversial in Congress, expire on April 19, 2024.
  • The Farm Bill is up for renewal at the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2024).
  • The National Defense Authorization Act will need to be passed by the end of 2024.
