HOUSE

The House is out of session this week and is not scheduled to convene again for votes until June 30. The lower chamber will hold remote hearings and committee meetings throughout the month. The House could be called back sooner, however, should the Senate act on another COVID-19 response bill. Members will be given at least 72 hours’ notice of any floor action.

 

SENATE

The Senate returns to Washington Monday at 3:00 p.m. and will resume consideration of Drew Tipton to be a judge with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The chamber is also expected to vote on the following nominees:
 

  • John Leonard Badalamenti as a judge for the Middle District of Florida
  • Victor G. Mercado as Assistant Secretary of Defense
  • Brian D. Miller as Special Inspector General for the coronavirus pandemic
  • James H. Anderson as Deputy Undersecretary of Defense

 
With the upper chamber back in session, lawmakers are expected to start working behind closed doors to develop another coronavirus relief package. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) indicated while back in Kentucky last week that talk would increase in the coming weeks on another package, and one topic lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are pushing for in any deal is expanding a tax credit for businesses that retain workers.
