The House returns from its week-long Fourth of July recess Tuesday at 2 p.m. to consider a number of measures under suspension of rules. Notable bills up for floor consideration this week include a bill (H.R. 6237) to authorize intelligence agencies for fiscal years 2018 and 2019 and a bill (H.R. 50, the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act) that requires the Congressional Budget Office to conduct an assessment comparing the authorized level of funding in legislation to the prospective costs of carrying out any changes to federal assistance being imposed on state, local, or tribal governments.



The Senate returns from the holiday break Monday at 3:00 p.m. to resume consideration of Mark Bennett to be a U.S. circuit judge for the 9th Circuit, with a cloture vote scheduled for 5:30 p.m. President Donald Trump is expected to announce his nominee for the Supreme Court today, which is likely to dominate Senate proceedings for the foreseeable future. This, combined with the various appropriations packages currently making their way through the Senate, makes the timeline for the House’s recently-passed opioid response bills even murkier than before.
