Below is this week’s congressional update by BakerHostetler’s Federal Policy team. We’ll continue to post in weeks when both chambers of Congress are in session.
- Democrats continue to struggle to find a path forward on President Joe Biden’s domestic agenda, both on infrastructure and on the separate multitrillion-dollar plan to expand safety-net spending and raise taxes.
- The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol is kicking into high gear, planning a Tuesday vote to hold former President Donald Trump’s one-time aide Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress.
- The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote on 29 nominees for ambassadorships, including several high-profile nominees.
