Bills Introduced – 11-26-19

Yesterday with both the House and Senate meeting in pro forma session (just the absolute bare minimum of congresscritters present – 2 or 3 per chamber) there were 13 bills introduced. Two of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 5274 To Making continuing appropriations for the Coast Guard. Rep. Van Drew, Jefferson [D-NJ-2] 

HR 5275 To make continuing appropriations for the Federal Aviation Administration for fiscal year 2020. Rep. Van Drew, Jefferson [D-NJ-2]

Well, since Van Drew is not on the House Appropriations Committee, these bills will probably go nowhere. Even so, these two bills are symbols of the continuing problem with the appropriations process. Controversies in a relatively small portion of the spending process are holding up the approval of the spending for the remaining portions of the government.
