The Week Ahead in Washington - November 26, 2018
Posted November 26, 2018 by CUNA Advocacy

The House of Representatives is in session this week, but no schedule has been released.  However, the National Flood Insurance Program expires on November 30 and government funding expires December 7.  Therefore, it is likely that the House will consider legislation in these areas, as well as possible tax legislation to reform the IRS, extend certain tax provisions, and make technical corrections to last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

The Senate reconvenes this week and will consider the nomination of Kathleen Kraninger to be the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. 



The House Financial Services Committee Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance will hold a hearing: “Oversight of the Federal Housing Administration”  

The House Financial Services Committee Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade will hold a hearing: “Evaluating the Effectiveness of the International Financial Institutions”  


The Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee will hold a full committee hearing: "Combating Money Laundering and Other Forms of Illicit Finance: Regulator and Law Enforcement Perspectives on Reform."
