House Cloakroom: July 18 – July 22

Analysis: Next week will be a big week in the House for the fight over the debt ceiling increase. On Tuesday the House will vote on the cut, cap and balance plan that would reduce spending, enact a statutory spending cap and make an increase in the debt ceiling contingent on the passage of a balance budget amendment to the Constitution. On Friday the House will vote on that balance budget amendment. These will be major votes as the administration’s stated August 2nd deadline to raise the debt ceiling approaches. The House is also expected to consider Consumer Financial Protection Reforms, the Legislative Branch Appropriations Bill and FAA reauthorization.

Major Floor Action:

  • HR 2560 – Cut, Cap and Balance Act
  • HJ Res 1 [1] – Proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United States
  • H.R. 2553 [2] – Airport and Airway Extension Act
  • HR 1315 [3] – Consumer Financial Protection Safety and Soundness Act
  • HR 2551 [4] – Legislative Branch Appropriations Bill
