House Cloakroom:

Analysis: This week, the House may move its attention to a food stamp bill that would reduce spending by $40 billion by eliminating USDA waivers for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDS). The reduction is far below the $135 billion (over 10 years) cut called for by the House-passed Ryan budget. The House may also consider legislation that would prohibit the federal government from subsidizing health insurance coverage under Obamacare’s insurance exchanges until a verification process is established for the eligibility of those receiving subsidies.

Major Floor Action:

  • H.R. ____ – Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act 
  • H.R. 2775 [1] – No Subsidies Without Verification Act
  • H.R. ____ – Continuing Resolution
  • S. 157 [2] - Denali National Park Improvement Act 
  • S. 256  [3]- A bill to amend Public Law 93-435 with respect to the Northern Mariana Islands, providing parity with Guam, the Virgin Islands, and American Samoa

Major Committee Action:

  • The Committee on Energy and Commerce [4] Subcommittee on Health has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday to examine the challenges and burdens on employers and states as a result of Obamacare.

Senate Cloakroom:

Analysis: This week, the Senate will vote on the authorization of use of military force (AUMF) in Syria, which was passed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by a vote of 10 to 7.

Major Floor Action: 

  • S. J. Res. ____ [5] – To authorize the limited and specified use of the United States Armed Forces against Syria.
