Monday, February 27th at 3:00PM ESTThe House and Senate this week come back into session for five weeks of work before the next recess. The highway bill will be the first order of business in the Senate. The House has a full schedule of suspension bills and hearings on the FY 2013 budget.
Expect an extended debate in Washington on President Obama’s strategy for Afghanistan in the wake of the killings of four U.S. servicemembers over the past week. Also, eyes from Washington will be on Arizona and Michigan to see if the Republican primary fight clears up. Don’t expect much legislating to happen this week in Congress.
