UPDATED: Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

This week may see the release of draft U.S. Senate and House farm bills, with mark-ups possibly occurring in the Senate Agriculture Committee early next week, and in the House Agriculture Committee on May 15.  The Senate will consider a motion to proceed with consideration of the Water Resources Development Act on Tuesday afternoon.  That motion is expected to easily pass, and then the Senate will take up full consideration of the bill (S 601).

Below are the other activities currently scheduled for the week in the House and Senate that bear watching, as they may relate to the sustainability of the Mississippi River Basin's natural and built resources. Where available, links are provided to the relevant Committee and legislation pages on the Internet. Many of the proceedings will be webcast live (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.
