This Week
The Senate will spend much of the week debating four judicial nominees, which Republicans have thus far refused to approve "en bloc," meaning that the nominees are grouped and voted on together as if one nominee. This is often the norm for noncontroversial nominees. Following these nominations, the Senate will move to take up veteran pension legislation. The House returns tomorrow to take up a handful of bills addressing the IRS, as well as several aimed at government oversight, particularly regulatory reform. The regulatory legislation would require federal agencies to provide and post more public information on the Internet about proposed and final regulations. In addition, it would require agencies to submit information for a monthly supplement to the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, a semiannual compilation of the federal regulations under development.

Until policymakers in Washington hear directly from impacted stakeholders such as the small businesses of ASA, they may never learn the true threat these regulations pose. Learn more here.

Supreme Court EPA Regulation Case Tests Limits, Balance of Power
Roll Call
