- Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate:
The House and Senate are in recess for the Independence Day holiday before returning next week for the July work period.
When they return, the House will resume negotiations on the fiscal year 2016 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, as well as other funding measures. See more information below. The Senate will take up No Child Left Behind reform, veteran’s legislation, and the Department of Defense Appropriations bill. The Export-Import Bank reauthorization and highway authorization debates loom as well, and Congress will finalize full schedules for the month in the coming days. Additional issues that may see some time and attention in Congress before the August recess include student performance, the medical device tax, medical research, customs enforcement, cybersecurity, air traffic control, appropriations, and nominations.
