Congress dealing with a few issues this week

The Senate will vote Monday on the nomination of Brock Long to be administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Administration.
After the Trump Administration’s focus last week on workforce and education issues the House will vote on several bills focused on closing the skills gap. There will also be vote on bipartisan measures focused on improving the foster care system.

Interior Secretary Zinke will sit before the energy and natural resources committee Tuesday to talk about budget requests for the Interior Department. He will also go before the appropriations committee the next day.

Also Tuesday, the foreign relations committee will hold a hearing on reviewing Congressional authorizations for the use of military force, an issue that hasn’t seen much attention since the US launched airstrikes in Syria this spring.
