A few animal-related bills are also up today:
— S. 622, the Animal Drug and Animal Generic Drug User Fee Reauthorization Act, reauthorizing user fees for the approval of animal drugs,
— H.R. 1206, the Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act, allowing duck stamps, which help fund conservation efforts, to be purchased online.
The self-explanatory San Antonio Missions National Historical Park Boundary Expansion Act, H.R. 885, is also on the schedule. Any roll call votes needed on these bills will take place at 6:30 p.m.
The Senate also returns at 2 p.m. and will resume work on the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act, S. 954. At 5:30 p.m. Senators are expected to hold two amendment votes.
One of them, from Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), would require the Federal Crop Insurance Corp. to research an insurance program for alfalfa. The other, from Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Mike Johanns (R-Neb.), would increase funding for a regional food aid program from $40 million to $60 million a year.
