Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

Below are the U.S. House and Senate hearings and meetings currently scheduled this week that relate to Mississippi River Basin water resources.   In addition, on Monday, the full House is scheduled to consider H.R. 2431 - The National Integrated Drought Information Systems Reauthorization Act of 2013 (Sponsored by Rep. Ralph Hall / Science, Space, and Technology Committee). That bill would amend the National Integrated Drought Information System Act of 2006 to specify that the National Integrated Drought Information System Program's purpose is to better inform and provide for more timely decision-making to reduce drought related impacts and costs.

Links are provided to the relevant Committee pages on the Internet.  Many Congressional proceedings are webcast live, and these may be, as well (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.
