In Context

After an abbreviated 2-day work week for the House, Congress has returned to its August recess. The Senate returns in two weeks, the House in three weeks.

Upon returning to Washington, the Congressional agenda is quite full:

1. Fund the U.S. Federal government for a year within two weeks, or extend last year's funding levels while next year's funding is finalized.

2. Manage the national debt which is expected to be at its limit in October or November.

3. The Biden/Democratic agenda: elections, infrastructure, union support.

4. Taliban response. Even before the Afghanistan government collapse and  subsequent terrorist attacks, Congressional leadership has been in discussions about war authorization repeal votes.

Senate Majority Leader Schumer has announced his intention to bring election-related legislation to the Senate floor as soon as the Senate returns
