This week, both the House of Representatives and the Senate will be in session.  The current “Continuing Resolution” that funds federal government operations will expire at midnight Friday.  As a result, both chambers of Congress must pass legislation this week to fund the federal government through the end of fiscal year 2018 (Sept. 30).  We expect this legislation will be in the form of an omnibus legislation bill encompassing funding that is normally divided into twelve separate bills.  CUNA has a number of priorities in this legislation.

In addition, the House will consider H.R. 4566, the Alleviating Stress Test Burdens to Help Investors Act. Also, the House is expected to consider H.R. 5247, the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act of 2018.

The Senate is expected to resume consideration of H.R. 1865, the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017.”
