Next Week in Congress

  • House – The House Speaker Pelosi has announced that the House will transmit the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate next week. The House is expected to consider H.J.Res. 76, which would provide for Congressional disapproval of the Department of Education’s rule on “Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability,” and H.R. 1230, “The Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act.”
  • Senate – The Senate may begin the trial in the impeachment of President Trump. Limited legislative activity is likely to occur during the trial, as measures can only be passed by unanimous consent. Prior to commencement of the trial, the Senate is expected to continue work on confirming pending nominees, including Peter Gaynor to be Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Senate is unlikely to vote on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) next week.
