Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

Below are the U.S. House and Senate activities currently scheduled for this week that relate to Mississippi River Basin water resources.  The House is recessed on Monday, June 16.  But the Senate will be in session beginning Monday afternoon, and at some point during the week, the full Senate is expected to take up a spending "minibus" bill package funding the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development for fiscal year 2015.  Links are provided to the relevant committee pages on the Internet, and, where appropriate, to pieces of legislation. Many Congressional proceedings are webcast live, and these should be, as well (follow the appropriate link at the scheduled hearing time).  All times are Eastern.  This page will be updated as warranted.

  • House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources Legislative hearing on legislation (H.R. 4293 and H.R. 1587), concerning approval of natural gas pipelines on Federal and Indian land; 9:30 AM, room 1334 Longworth House Office Building.
