The House on Wednesday advanced two bills that Republicans say would help create jobs.
Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat small farmers fairly in new food safety regulations.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Tuesday that ObamaCare subsidies are a “fraudster's dream come true.”
Hatch’s comments came after the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA)...
The House meets in the afternoon to consider legislation that would ease Dodd-Frank financial rules in an attempt to free up investment capital in small companies.

Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said he was concerned that new technologies in cars could violate privacy protections or be hacked.

The House on Tuesday approved suspension bills dealing with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and federal land use, finishing up work on the week's non-controversial bills.
