Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

Below are the U.S. House and Senate activities currently scheduled this week that relate to Mississippi River Basin water resources. Where available, links are provided to the relevant Committee and legislation pages on the Internet.   In addition,  sometime during the Wednesday to Friday time window, the House is expected to consider the "Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act" and the Fiscal Year 2014 Continuing Appropriations Resolution 2014 (to keep the government running past September 30). The nutrition bill floor consideration reportedly will clear the way for the House Speaker to appoint farm bill conferees and start the farm bill House-Senate conferencing process.  Many of the proceedings are webcast live (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.

  • Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing to consider pending nominations, including that of Mr. Michael L. Connor to be Deputy Secretary of Interior; 9:30 AM; room SD-366 Senate Dirksen Building
