On Wednesday and Thursday, the House will meet at 10:00 a.m. for legislative business.

Next week, pending action by the Senate, the House will consider the CHIPS-Plus legislation to combat inflation by easing supply chain bottlenecks in semiconductors that are critical components in everything from cars to dishwashers to small electronics, helping lower costs for the American people.  This bill also will authorize a generational shift in research and innovation in America, helping ensure the next big ideas will start here and stay here.

The House will also consider H.R. 5118, the Wildfire Response and Drought Resiliency Act, a package of bills aimed at helping those living in Western states meet the challenges of fire and drought exacerbated by the climate crisis.  This legislation would save lives, property, and farms and businesses from damage and destruction of fire and extreme drought. 

The House will also consider several other bipartisan bills:
  • Rep. Dan Kildee’s H.R. 6929, the Susan Muffley Act to restore retirement benefits to over 20,000 hardworking Delphi salaried retirees;
  • Rep. Mike Quigley’s H.R. 263, the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which would ban the private ownership of big cats and bring an end to the harmful cub petting industry, in an effort to enhance the safety of our communities, protect first responders, and safeguard these wild animals;
  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s H.R. 3771, the South Asian Heart Health Awareness and Research Act, to raise awareness regarding the alarming rate of heart disease in the South Asian community and invest in reversing this trend;
  • and, Rep. Liz Cheney’s H.R. 4040, the Advancing Telehealth Beyond COVID-19 Act, which would further extend critical telehealth policies implemented during the pandemic while also making it easier for seniors – especially those in rural areas – to access emerging health care technologies.
The House may also consider public safety legislation, including legislation marked up yesterday by the House Judiciary Committee.

The House will consider bills under suspension of the Rules. The complete list of suspension bills will be announced by the close of business tomorrow.

Additional legislative items are possible."
