LEADER'S FLOOR UPDATE
 
Schedule for the Week of January 17, 2022
as announced by Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer
 
“On Tuesday, the House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for Morning Hour and 2:00 p.m. for legislative business, with votes postponed until 6:30 p.m. 
 
On Wednesday and Thursday, the House will meet at 10:00 a.m. for Morning Hour and 12:00 p.m. for legislative business.
 
On Friday, the House will meet at 9:00 a.m. for legislative business. 
 
The House will consider S. 2959, the Supplemental Impact Aid Flexibility Act, under suspension of the Rules, which passed the Senate unanimously last month.  Co-authored by Rep. Joe Courtney, this bipartisan legislation allows local educational agencies participating in the Impact Aid Program to use the student-count or federal-property-valuation data from their FY2022 program applications for their FY2023 applications.  This will prevent schools from losing substantial funding upon which they rely to address COVID-19 learning loss by giving them more flexibility to use pre-pandemic data to calculate funding needs.
 
Additionally, the House may consider other bills under suspension of the Rules. The complete list of suspension bills will be announced by the close of business tomorrow. 
 
The House will also consider H.R. 4673, the EVEST Act, sponsored by Chairman Mark Takano of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee. This legislation would automatically enroll eligible veterans into the V.A. health care system so that no veterans are left behind when it comes to receiving quality, affordable health care. 
 
Furthermore, the House stands ready to act on the Build Back Better Act, as well as the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act, should the Senate amend them. 
 
Lastly, additional legislative items are possible.”
