After a two-week district work period, the House and the Senate are back in session today.
On the floor for both bodies, it is a slow week, but do not let the apparent tranquility fool you, for big things are happening backstage!
Today, the Senate confirmed former head envoy to North Korea Christopher Hill as the U.S. ambassador to Iraq. The nomination had proved contentious before the break, but today he was confirmed easily, 73-23.
Soon, we will take a look at the draft of the climate change bill currently under discussion in the Energy and Commerce Committee. A sneak preview: a lot of people are going to hate it.
And later, we will tell you about some Congressmen and Congresswomen who are a bit slow on updating their Web sites.
We hope you will join us. Are there other issues you are following or are particularly concerned with? Tell us what you think.
