Congressional Update

Most members of Congress will not be back in D.C. until after Labor Day, but House leadership is taking steps to move appropriations bills forward. The House Rules Committee posted a package of eight appropriations bills on Aug. 16 and has set an Aug. 25 deadline to submit amendments. The House could have a floor vote when lawmakers return at the beginning of September. The package of remaining non-defense funding bills includes the FY 2018 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development spending bill. Congressional Republicans are also still planning to produce a tax reform plan that can be voted on in 2017. As NHC has previously reported, the fall of 2017 could be very eventful in terms of spending and tax legislation.
