Lawmakers Mostly Inactive As Summer Break Begins

We didn’t send an update last week as the House and Senate both began what is likely to be months-long summer break. This week, the Senate returns briefly on Wednesday to vote on bills and hold a handful of committee hearings, the highlights of which we’ll note below. 

The House is not currently scheduled to return until after the November election but has set aside a few “if needed” dates in September.

Newsletters will be infrequent for the next several months – we’ll only send a dispatch if legislative hearings or sessions are scheduled. You can always view the full legislative calendar online.
