HOUSE

The House meets at noon on Monday and will consider eight bills under suspension of the rules, including H.R. 4458, which would require regulators to report to Congress on cybersecurity. First votes are expected at 6:30 p.m.
 
On Tuesday (or later), the House will consider the “Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act" (H.R. 1230), which would amend current law to declare that a complainant is not required to demonstrate that age or retaliation was the sole cause of an unlawful employment practice (therefore allowing what are commonly known as "mixed motive" claims). The chamber will also vote on H.J.Res. 76, which would formally disapprove of the rule submitted by the Education Department relating to "Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability."
 
Later in the week, the House is expected to pass a resolution to appoint House managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate.

 

SENATE

 

The Senate meets at 3:00 p.m. Monday and will resume consideration of Peter Gaynor to be administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. At 5:30 p.m., they vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination.
