Congressional Outlook

The House and Senate are in recess this week but the House will be holding "Committee Work Days" all week. No votes are scheduled in either chamber until the week of July 20.

The House Appropriations Committee (HAC) will begin considering FY 2021 appropriations bills this week. According to the HAC markup schedule, all 12 FY 2021 appropriations bills will be marked up in subcommittee by Wednesday. The full committee will consider 302(b) subcommittee allocations on Thursday and will markup five of the 12 FY 2021 bills on Thursday and Friday. The remaining seven bills are expected to be considered in full committee next week. The House is aiming to pass all 12 FY 2021 appropriations bills by the end of the month, but leaders have yet to release a floor schedule. Progress on appropriations in the Senate continues to be delayed due to partisan disagreements.

Several committee hearings related to COVID-19 are scheduled in the House this week as well.

Voters in Delaware, Louisiana, and New Jersey will head to the polls this week for congressional and/or presidential primaries.
