This Week in Congress

Date: May 21, 2019

Both Chambers of Congress are in session this week before recessing for Memorial Day next week. Please note that there will not be an edition of the Washington Insider next week unless there is breaking news to report.

On Wednesday, President Trump is scheduled with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to discuss how to pay for a proposed $2 trillion infrastructure initiative. This is a follow up to a meeting on April 30.

The House Appropriations Committee is continuing to markup Fiscal Year 2020 spending bills. On Tuesday, Energy and Water will be considered by the full Committee and the Interior-Environment bill will be marked up on Wednesday. Additional bills could be added to the agenda this week.
