Updated: Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For

The U.S. House will be in session Monday through Wednesday, this week, while the Senate is scheduled for a full work week, when that chamber most likely finish its consideration of S.1, a bill to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline (and any offered amendments). Pipeline proponents say that 63 senators will support the bill; more than the 60 needed for a filibuster-proof majority.

Below are the House and Senate activities currently scheduled for the week that relate to Mississippi River Basin water resources. Links are provided to the relevant hearing and meeting web pages, and, where appropriate, to pieces of legislation.  Many Congressional proceedings are webcast live, and these should be, as well (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.  This page will be updated as warranted. 

  • House Appropriations Committee organizational meeting; 9:15 AM, room 2359 Rayburn House Office Building.
  • House Natural Resources Committee organizational meeting; 9:45 AM, room 1324 Longworth House Office Building.
  • Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee organizational meeting; 4:00 PM,  President's Room (S-216) of the U.S. Capitol. (UPDATED LOCATION)
