Outlook for This Week in the Nation's Capital

Congress. The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has now officially requested President Trump’s tax returns for review, which the President again reiterated he would move to block, likely setting up a future court battle.  Last week House Democrats also filed suit against the President regarding his emergency border declaration, as well as issuing additional subpoenas for Trump family business records and dealings.  The Senate spent the past week mired in partisan recriminations after Republicans invoked the “nuclear option” and unilaterally changed Senate rules to brush off Democratic delays of Trump nominees.  Both chambers return for another busy week of business today, prior to the coming Easter recess next week.

White House.  The President traveled over the end of the week and weekend to a border location event, and then several fundraisers on the West Coast, having backed off his threat to close the border, for now.  Trump also announced that he expected a finalized trade deal with China and meeting to sign it within the next 4 weeks, but a final deal is not expected to be announced this week.  The chaotic past week also saw the President publicly slam the Federal Reserve, a day after a top aide contended the President is not trying to influence the economic board’s decisions. 

Budget & Appropriations. The House and Senate continued to grind through a large number of annual appropriations hearings with various federal agencies and departments, with another such week on tap – the House will hear from AG Barr at the DOJ’s FY20 hearing (other topics likely to be raised at this hearing!) and also the USDA, Army, IRS, Immigration and Customs and DOT. The Senate Appropriations Committee will also hear from Barr, as well as State, Army Corps of Engineers, NIH, USDA and DHS on their FY20 requests.  The Senate remains stuck on the House-passed disaster supplemental and Majority Leader McConnell’s counterproposal.  Senate Minority Leader Schumer has offered a $16.7 billion alternative proposal with more aid for Puerto Rico and the Midwest and urged GOP leaders to simply try to “roll” the President.  In addition to the immediate humanitarian impact, there are broader political and policy implications from the impasse, especially if the massive bill isn’t completed soon. In particular, Senate Democrats campaigning in Iowa for the presidency are almost certain to be pressed on why they haven’t delivered flood relief to the region.

Last Week in the Nation's Capital

CONGRESS

Health

Democrats Struggle to Unite Behind Drug Price Plan:  Progressive House lawmakers met this week with Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) top health care staffer, Wendell Primus, to push for a drug pricing bill authored by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) that would impose severe punishments on pharmaceutical companies that refuse to negotiate prices with the federal government.  The concern among liberals is that a competing measure being crafted by Pelosi’s office will go easy on drug companies. They're also wary of Pelosi’s staff holding talks with the White House about drug price reforms. (The Hill)

Tax

Ways and Means Considers Major Changes to Retirement Savings Incentives: The third time may be the charm for a 122-page collection of retirement benefit tweaks that died in the last two Congresses but has become a top priority for House Ways and Means Chairman Richard E. Neal. (Roll Call)

Senate Panel Approves Trump's Pick for Interior Dept.: A key Senate committee approved President Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Interior, putting former energy lobbyist David Bernhardt closer to becoming the permanent head of the agency that oversees public lands. (Reuters)

FBI Needs More Resources for Cyberattacks: Cyberattacks represent “a significant challenge” that “exceeds the bandwidth that we have at the moment,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told House lawmakers Thursday during a hearing on the bureau's fiscal year 2020 budget. “Whatever resources you were to make available to us on the cyber mission could immediately be put to good use,” Wray told Rep. Matt Cartwright when asked if the FBI wanted more than the $70 million increase for its cyber program included in Trump's budget. (Clark Hill Insight)

Space/NASA & NOAA

House Committee Presses Bridenstine for Details on Moon Plan:  NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine faced criticism from some House members at an April 2 hearing who questioned the urgency of the administration’s plans to accelerate a human return to the moon and sought details about how much it will cost.  A hearing by the House Science Committee on NASA’s budget request focused in large part on plans not included in the original request to move up landings of astronauts on the moon from 2028 to 2024. Vice President Pence announced the new goal during the March 26 meeting of the National Space Council. (Space News)

Myers Nomination for NOAA Administrator Clears Senate Committee, Space Commerce and Weather Research Bills Addressed: The nomination of Barry Lee Myers to head NOAA cleared the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee last Wednesday on a party-line vote.  Nominated by President Trump in 2017 and again in 2018, he was not confirmed by 115th Congress because of controversy over his ties to AccuWeather, which is owed by his brother and where he worked for a large part of his career. The Committee also approved several pieces of legislation including S. 881, Space Weather Research and Forecasting Act, and S. 919, the Space Frontier Act, largely unchanged from the versions that passed the Senate last year. (Space Policy Online)

(Industry Week)

Energy

Perry Doesn't Rule Out Further Help for Coal, Nuclear: During a Senate Energy Committee hearing, Energy Secretary Rick Perry defended his support for intervening in power markets to prop up struggling coal and nuclear power in the name of resilience.  Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) asked Perry whether such interventions were necessary given declining costs of renewable power and batteries and the lack of any major disruptions to the electric grid.  Perry said it showed “leadership” to make sure that reliable power plants can stay online, and he pointed out that the “government picks winners and loser every day” with its energy policies.
