This Week on Capitol Hill, Feb 22-26

Last week Congress was in recess for Presidents’ Day District Work Period.  Business was also impeded the week before due to the blizzard that hit Washington DC.  This week brings Congress back to face jobs creation and health care legislation. 


The Senate laid the way for a vote of the jobs creation bill, which will probably take place before the end of the week. 


The House will consider the jobs creation bill, a draft bill on repealing antitrust exemption for health insurers, and HR 2701, Intelligence authorization

 Hearings continue in both chambers on the fiscal 2011 budget and appropriations.
