Today on the Hill: Senate Finance Reviews USMCA Implementing Legislation

Senators on the Finance Committee are meeting to consider implementing legislation for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The bill is expected to clear the Committee with bipartisan support later this morning, allowing for a vote in the full chamber at some point this month. While Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) previously stated that the Senate will vote on the USMCA following the impeachment trial, the vote may be expedited if the House continues to hold on to the articles of impeachment.

On the floor, Senators will hold a final confirmation vote on Jovita Carranza's nomination to be Administrator of the Small Business Administration. The upper chamber will also consider the nominations of Matthew Solomson and Eleni Maria Roumel to be Judges on the United States Court of Federal Claims. Meanwhile, the House will convene for a quorum call to begin the second session of the 116th Congress.
