Congress Returns Next Week

May 29, 2024

Congress has adjourned for the Memorial Day district and state work periods, and lawmakers will resume legislative business on Monday, June 3. When the House returns, lawmakers are expected to take up the first fiscal year (FY) 2025 spending bill for Military Construction-VA, which passed out of the Appropriations Committee in a party-line vote during a markup last week. Meanwhile, an announcement from Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on the Senate’s schedule will likely occur at some point this week. The next vote scheduled in the upper chamber is a procedural vote to advance Christopher Hanson’s nomination to be a member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
