Committee Hearings – Week of 07-09-17

The House and Senate are back in Washington after their extended 4th of July weekend. Spending bills are the big item in the House this week; that and HR 2810, the FY2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Spending Bills

The House Appropriations Committee and its various subcommittees will be holding a number of hearings this week on the individual spending bills.

HR 2810

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the House Rules Committee is holding two meetings (Tuesday and Wednesday) on HR 2810, the FY 2018 NDAA. Generally, we can expect the first meeting to establish the general ground rules for debate on the floor of the House. The second will establish which amendments may be offered on the floor. The number will be large and will include the major Democrat wish-list amendments.

The House will begin consideration of HR 2810 on Wednesday and should finish with a final vote Thursday night.
