CQ on Congress


Sep 16, 2016

With fewer than two weeks left to fund the government past the Sept. 30 end of the fiscal year, deal-making in Congress is in overdrive, says CQ Roll Call’s Budget reporter Jennifer Shutt. Lawmakers will have to overcome a slew of sticking points to provide money to combat the Zika virus. They'll also have to decide whether to prevent the Oct. 1 transfer of internet functions from a U.S. group to a global body. Adding to the mix, says CQ Roll Call’s Lindsey McPherson, is an effort by conservatives to impeach the IRS chief.
