WASHINGTON (1/26/16)--The East Coast blizzard, dubbed #Snowzilla by some news and social media, has forced the U.S. House of Representatives to cancel this week's session. The House will meet next on Feb. 1.
News media reported snow accumulations throughout the D.C. area ranging from 17 inches to more than 28 inches, delivered over a day and a half. (See related story: Digging out: E. Coast CUs reopen after historic blizzard).
The Senate intends to return to session on Wednesday and conduct a vote on a judicial nomination. Later in the week, that body is expected to consider S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act.
The Senate Finance Committee had planned a hearing today on "Helping Americans Prepare for Retirement: Increasing Access, Participation and Coverage in Retirement Savings Plans." CUNA will monitor developments and watch for when that hearing will be rescheduled.
Federal agencies, including the National Credit Union Administration, were closed Monday.
