Schedule for the Week of September 27, 2021
as announced by Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer

"On Monday, the House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for Morning Hour debate and 2:00 p.m. for legislative business, with votes expected no earlier than 6:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, 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 several bills under suspension of the Rules.  The complete list of Suspension bills will be announced by the close of business today. 

The Budget Committee has announced a Markup for the Build Back Better Act for tomorrow and it is my intention to bring it to the Floor next week.  This legislation will help move tens of millions of Americans closer to economic security while also making transformational investments in making child care more affordable, helping Americans access health care, and addressing climate change with the seriousness it deserves.

On Monday, September 27, pursuant to the Rule passed in August, the House will consider the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.  This legislation passed the Senate on a bipartisan basis last month and would create millions of good jobs all across America by investing in critical infrastructure projects. 

If time allows, the House may also consider three bills from the Committee on Education and Labor, including H.R. 3110, the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act, which amends the Fair Labor Standards Act to provide workplace protections for mothers to pump breast milk in the workplace, H.R. 3992, the Protecting Older Job Applicants Act, which allows applicants to bring a disparate impact claim under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 when they experience age discrimination while seeking a job, and H.R. 2119, the Family Violence Prevention and Services Improvement Act of 2021, which modifies, expands, and reauthorizes through FY2026 the Family Violence and Prevention Services program, which funds emergency shelters and supports related assistance for victims of domestic violence.

Lastly, additional legislative items are possible."
