UPDATED: Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

Senate floor activity on the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) moved along slowly last week (with only four of the amendments to the bill considered and passed thus far).  Here is a link to a description of the significant amendments passed last week. Further full Senate activity likely will occur during this week.  There will be a Senate floor vote on a motion to invoke cloture on the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) at noon Tuesday, unless the two sides come to an agreement.  The vote would take a 3/5 majority to pass and would limit further bill consideration to 30 hours.

Below are the other activities currently scheduled this week in the U.S. House and Senate that could have a significant impact on 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 are webcast live (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.
