Today on the Hill: Recess Edition (2/21)

Both the House and Senate are out for a weeklong recess in honor of President’s Day. Congress is scheduled to return on Monday, Feb. 27 for a six-week legislative session before the Easter recess in April. While the agenda remains fluid, Commerce Secretary nominee Wilbur Ross will likely be first up in the confirmation queue when the Senate returns next week. Additionally, although President Trump will follow recent tradition and not deliver a formal State of the Union in his first year in office, he is set to speak to a joint session of Congress next Tuesday on his legislative priorities.

Health Policy Report

The Week in Review Congress continued to take aim at Obama-era regulations last week, with both chambers passing disapprovals of a Securities and Exchange Commission rule requiring companies to publish the payments they make to foreign governments as a part of their attempts to extract natural resources (H.J. Res. 41), an environmental regulation that aims to protect U.S. streams from waste (H.J. Res. 38), and a Bureau of Land Management rule related to the emission of the powerful greenhouse gas methane (H.J. Res. 36). Democrats opposed the moves, but the provisions of the Congressional Review Act (CRA) allow for Congress to disapprove of rules finalized within the last 60 legislative days of the previous session on a simple majority vote in both chambers.
