Tuesday: Transportation, housing spending bills in the House and Senate

The rule allows for unlimited germane amendments, which means amendments are likely Tuesday and Wednesday.

Members will also work on up to three suspension bills:

— H.R. 2094, the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act, providing grants to schools that train staff to deal with asthma,

— H.R. 2754, Collectible Coin Protection Act, updating U.S. law on the importation of collectible coins, and

— H.R. 1300, reauthorizing volunteer programs in national wildlife refuges.

The Senate starts at 10 a.m., and shortly thereafter, it will vote on whether to end debate on the nomination of Kent Hirozawa to join the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB). A successful vote will set up 8 hours of debate time, which could be waived to allow a quick vote on the nomination.

After Hirozawa, the nominations of Nancy Schiffer and Mark Pearce to join the NLRB will follow.

The Senate may also hold votes on amendments to its own version of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, S. 1243. The Senate version spends $10 billion more than the bill members of the House are considering this week.
