Confirming a replacement for Eric Holder as Attorney General and leader of the Justice Department looks like a tough job for President Barack Obama right now. Congress won't do anything until the lame duck session after the election, and most of the names floated so far have baggage that could at least hold up their nominations -- if they were ever nominated. But three names making the rounds may not be as tough to get confirmed as some others. David Hawkings is Senior Editor at Roll Call, and on In Depth with Francis Rose, explains why one of these three could be the next AG.
Most people expected Congress to completely leave Washington when both houses went into recess for the fall election. But two congressional committees will have at least a few members back in town this week. David Hawkings is Senior Editor at Roll Call, and writes the Hawkings Here blog. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explained what they might be up to.
President Barack Obama's signature makes the continuing resolution through Dec. 11 official. And the leaders of the Appropriations Committees in the House and Senate are already at work on a spending plan for the rest of fiscal 2015. David Hawkings is Senior Editor at Roll Call, and on In Depth with Francis Rose, he shared the committee's work on the omnibus bill.
The House might vote on a continuing resolution to keep your agency running through the end of the year as early as tomorrow. But issues like military action against the Islamic State and what to do about the Import-Export Bank could get in the way. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he offered his thoughts on the chances a CR gets a vote in the House.
The pressure to get a deal done to prevent another government shutdown is already on Congress as it comes back from summer recess today. It looks like they won't waste any time getting down to business. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. On his blog "Hawkings Here" and on In Depth with Francis Rose, David said he's watching the continuing resolution negotiations and the richest members of Congress.
A big "no" for another government shutdown comes from a prominent Republican, but there's a catch. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) -- the chairman of the House Budget Committee -- says the government won't shut down this fall. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. He tracked the key players in shutdown avoidance as Congress prepares to come back to Washington in two weeks on In Depth with Francis Rose.
New chairmen of Senate Committees and subcommittees could have a dramatic impact on your agency's oversight, and the demands Congress makes of your committee. And the potential flip of the Senate from Democratic to Republican control looks more and more likely. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call and writes the Hawkings Here blog at RollCall.com. On In Depth with Francis Rose, David said the lineup of new chairs would have more experience than people think.
The goal to get a spending bill done for your agency looks less and less likely by the time the fiscal year ends September 30th. And the other work Congress thought it could get done -- reform at the Department of Veterans Affairs -- seems to be hitting a wall too. David Hawkings is Senior Editor at Roll Call, and he shared the progress for both of these major pieces of work on In Depth with Francis Rose.
The Senate plans to mark up the 2015 defense appropriations bill on Thursday. That will probably help make it the first appropriations bill to pass the Senate for fiscal 2015. Meanwhile the House will try to pass its seventh appropriations bill. Congress as a whole needs to pass 12 spending bills by September 30th if it wants to avoid another continuing resolution or a full government shutdown. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. He shared Capitol Hill's progress on the bills on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.
The House is beating the Senate five to nothing in the race to pass next year's appropriations bills. The topline spending amounts for federal agencies are already set, but even so Congress isn't exactly sprinting to finalize the budgets. But the clock is still ticking and September 30th is only about three months away. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. He explained where Congress stands in the appropriations process on In Depth with Francis Rose.
