On the Blog: A Big Week

The House of Representatives is planning to debate a LOT of bills this week.

Take a look in the blog post entitled: “The House’s Huge Agenda.”

Featured Item

This week, the House will debate H.R. 5538, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017.

The bill spends money on the operations of the Department of the Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, and a variety of other agencies.

The committee report for H.R. 5538 does not reveal the outlays that would occur under the bill, but the Senate version would spend about $300 per U.S. family, and the two bills are usually very similar.
