Today in Congress

The Senate’s in at 10:00am and will continue work on a veterans jobs bill. A series of votes are possible. The chamber will recess from 12:30 to 2:15pm for weekly caucus lunches. Then, the senate will hold a procedural vote on the House-passed six-month continuing resolution to fund the government.

The House is in at noon with votes expected about 6:30 p.m. on nearly 30 bills, including one honoring the four Americans who died in Libya and condemning the attacks on United States diplomatic facilities in Libya, Egypt, and Yemen. Another would confirm full ownership rights for certain US astronauts to artifacts from the astronauts’ space missions.
