HOUSE

The House meets at noon and will consider four Homeland Security bills under suspension of the rules.
 
On Tuesday, the House will convene at 12:00 p.m. to consider H. Res. 271, a bill that condemns the White House announcement last week that the Trump administration now supports full repeal of the Affordable Care Act – a shift from its previous position in Texas v. Azar calling only for the repeal of the individual mandate and protections for those with pre-existing conditions. A letter announcing this policy change was sent from the DOJ to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals last Monday.
 
Later in the week, the House will consider H.R. 1585, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.

 

SENATE

 

The Senate convenes at 3:00 p.m. and will resume consideration of The Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2019 (H.R. 268). Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has filed the amendment tree for the vote, effectively keeping Democrats from pushing for a vote on a proposal to ban Justice Department funds to support the lawsuit meant to overturn Obamacare.
