House Cloakroom: August 9 – 13

The House adjourned a week ago, but due to a last minute passage of additional bailout funding to states for being unable to manage their own finances, they will come back for another round of spending . On Tuesday, they are set to vote on the Senate amendment to H.R. 1586  that was originally a House FAA authorization bill replaced now with a $26.1 billion bailout that includes $10 billion to teachers’ salaries  and $16.1 billion for extension of Federal Medicaid matching rates. The House will take up the measure on Tuesday as well as a privileged resolution from Representative Price (GA-6) pledging that Congress not assemble for a lame-duck session after the election unless emergency action by Congress is needed. After voting on these two measures, the House will likely recess until September 13th.
