NAHC Ready for Congress to Return

As the August congressional recess comes to an end, NAHC is prepared for Congress to return after Labor Day.  Both the House and Senate are expected to be in session for about one month, although it may be shorter, before adjourning again to campaign for the November 8th election.  This means the month of September is the last chance for legislative activity before the election and “lame duck” session.  While NAHC expects September to be dominated by debate on funding the government and Zika response funding, there will also be a flurry of activity within committees and from individual members utilizing the last few days to introduce legislation and make political and policy statements.

The top debate when Congress returns will be regarding funding the federal government to avert a pre-election shutdown, as the current funding expires September 30th.  Much of this debate will be centered around the length of a funding stopgap bill, with some members of congress wanting the stopgap measure to run into the new year with a new President to negotiate with, while other members are demanding a short term bill to expire during the “lame duck” session of congress.  Alongside these negotiations will be discussions of how to fund a Zika response.  The medical innovation bill, 21st Century Cures Act, is another bill that may see consideration by the full House and Senate.  NAHC is closely monitoring this process, largely to eye any potential vehicles for our own priorities to move, as well as to make sure no troublesome provisions are added to any must-pass spending bill or healthcare legislation.
