This week both the House and Senate will be in Washington, but there will only be a limited number of hearings being held, mainly focusing in the Senate on confirmation hearings. Two of those this week may be of specific interest to readers of this blog; confirmation hearings of DHS and DOT Secretaries.
On Tuesday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will be holding a hearing on the confirmation of General John F. Kelly, USMC (Ret.) to be the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. I suspect that we will be hearing some talk about cybersecurity matters, but it will be short on details.
On Wednesday, the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee will be holding a hearing on the confirmation of Elaine Chao to be the Secretary of the Department of Transportation. I suspect that there will be some mention of vehicle automation and chemical transportation safety issues, but again no details.
