The Cloakroom – Jan. 31 – Feb. 4

House Analysis:

The House will not be in session in order for Members to spend the week working in their respective districts.

Senate Analysis:

The Senate wrapped up last Thursday after a week that was largely spent on changing procedural rules of the Senate (the other vote taken last week was to honor the victims and first responders involved in the Tucson shooting tragedy). Senator Reid indicated the Senate may move to consider the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) Reauthorization Bill, legislation he tried unsuccessfully to pass through the Senate last year. He stated on the Senate Floor last week, “This is the time for a good old fashioned Senate debate, something that will really help the American people” when discussing future consideration of the FAA Reauthorization Bill.

Major Floor Action:

S. 223: FAA Reauthorization Bill
