This Week in Congress

Congress has reached a funding agreement for the six remaining FY24 appropriations bills prior to the March 22nd government shutdown deadline. Those six bills include: Defense, Financial Services, Homeland Security, Labor-HHS-Education, Legislative Branch, and State-Foreign Operations.

The House voted on a slate of energy-related legislation as part of their “Energy Week.” The legislation would repeal emission reduction programs, prevent the President from imposing a national hydraulic fracturing ban, modify the Clean Water Act permit processes, oppose a carbon tax, and block the Biden administration’s proposal to overhaul onshore oil and gas leasing rules. Additionally, the House voted on legislation that would bar data transfers to adversary countries or companies controlled by them, a follow-up to the bill passed last week to force ByteDance to divest TikTok or face a U.S. ban.  Finally, the Senate debated nomination votes and worked to finalize the FY24 Budget. Congress will be in Easter/Spring Recess until April 9th!
