The Senate is in recess through this week.
The House returns from recess on Wednesday. The House Rules Committee is expected to clear the way for floor consideration of three appropriations bills to be taken up over the next couple of weeks: MilCon/VA, Energy and Water, and Homeland Security. These may very well be the last bills they push through before the August recess.
On Thursday, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee is holding a hearing on Promoting Manufacturing Innovation to discuss the Proposed National Network for Manufacturing Innovation.
Also on Thursday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a hearing to discuss President Obama’s energy strategies.
