This week, both the House and Senate will return from their August district work periods. The House will consider a number of pieces of legislation. Of interest to financial institutions, the House will vote on two CUNA-supported bills… H.R. 2852, the Homebuyer Assistance Act of 2019 and H.R. 281, the Ensuring Diverse Leadership Act of 2019.

The Senate will begin committee consideration of appropriations legislation this week. Most of the 12 bills will not receive subcommittee consideration because of the truncated schedule (Sept. 30 marks the end of the fiscal year 2019). The Senate is expected to start consideration of appropriations bills on the Senate floor the week of Sept. 16. On the floor this week, the Senate will consider a number of executive branch nominations.
