It is anticipated that this will be the final week of legislative action before both House and Senate recess to campaign before the November election.

U.S. House: The House Rules Committee is set to meet today to discuss the terms of debate for the Water
Resources Development Act. The bill would authorize Army Corps of Engineers projects for dredging
in harbors and inland waterways. Watch for Democrats to seek amendments to restore language that
would free up spending from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund. They may also try to add aid for
Flint and other cities with lead-contaminated water systems.

U.S. Senate:  The Senate will be focused on resolving lingering points of dispute on a stopgap government funding bill.  The primary issue is whether or not to include funding to help Flint, MI eliminate lead from its water supply.  The bill would fund the U.S. government through December 9.
