LEADER'S FLOOR UPDATE
 
Schedule for the Week of May 16, 2022
as announced by Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer
 
“On Monday, 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 Tuesday, the House will meet at 9:00 a.m. and will recess shortly thereafter.  At approximately 11:00 a.m., the House will meet in Joint Session with his Excellency Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic.
 
On Wednesday, the House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for legislative business. 
 
On Thursday, the House will meet at 9:00 a.m. for legislative business. 

The House will consider several bills under suspension of the Rules.  The complete list of suspension bills will be announced by the close of business today. 
  
The House will also consider Chairman Bobby Scott’s H.R. 7309, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2022, which is an important part of my Make It In America agenda.  Now more than ever, businesses need skilled workers, and it is essential that we reauthorize WIOA to expand access to skills training for high-demand, high-wage jobs. 
 
Additionally, the House will consider H.R. 7688, the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act, introduced by Reps. Kim Schrier and Katie Porter. This critical legislation would give the President the power to issue an Energy Emergency Declaration, which would make it unlawful to increase gasoline and home-energy fuel prices in an excessive or exploitative manner. This bill would protect consumers against irresponsible actors in the oil and gas industries who would artificially inflate prices for extra profit, and it would lower the cost of gas for Americans at the gas pump. 
 
The House will consider two bills under suspension of the Rules in recognition of National Police Week. The first is H.R. 6943, the Public Safety Officer Support Act, bipartisan legislation sponsored by Rep. David Trone that would expand eligibility for the Public Safety Officers' Benefits program to include stress and trauma-related injuries and death-by-suicide for law enforcement officers and their families. The second is Rep. Bill Pascrell's H.R. 2992, the TBI and PTSD Law Enforcement Training Act, bipartisan legislation that would require the Department of Justice to develop crisis-intervention training tools for law enforcement agencies so that they can better equip officers to respond to individuals with traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Furthermore, the House will consider H.R. 6531, the Targeting Resources to Communities in Need Act of 2022, sponsored by Reps. Jim Clyburn and Hal Rogers, as well as S. 2938, legislation to designate the United States Courthouse and Federal Building located at 111 North Adams Street in Tallahassee, Florida, as the ‘Joseph Woodrow Hatchett United States Courthouse and Federal Building,’ sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio, under a Rule.
 
Lastly, additional legislative items are possible.”
