CUNA Legislative Update
September 23, 2013
Although the House of Representatives was scheduled to have a recess this week, both chambers will be in session to consider a funding resolution for the first part of the next fiscal year and continue negotiations over the debt ceiling.
The Senate reconvened at 2:00 pm on Monday to consider the nomination of Todd M. Hughes to be United States Circuit Judge for the Federal Circuit. For the remainder of the week, the Senate is considering the House passed continuing resolution. The Senate is likely to remove the language in the House-passed CR and insert new bill text and send it back to the House, probably at the end of the week. A continuing resolution must be enacted before October 1 to avoid a shutdown of the federal government.
