Congress has returned to Washington, D.C., for the final days of the 114th Congress with 1 significant priority: to pass a funding resolution to keep the government operating beyond Dec. 9.
Currently the House is scheduled to be in session for 16 days, and the Senate for 20, but it is likely that the session will last as long as there is must-pass work to be done.
This week, CUNA will also be monitoring a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing titled “Modernizing Appraisals: A Regulatory Review and the Future of the Industry.”
Also in Washington, D.C. this week, new members of Congress will arrive for orientation, and party caucuses will hold leadership elections.
For more information on the outlook for the 115th Congress, see CUNA’s post-election white paper, which was released last week. CUNA’s paper examines possibilities for regulatory relief, potential changes in key congressional committees and NCUA board appointments under a new administration and Congress.
