In the May edition of the Washington Tax Insight, True Partners Consulting take a look at Politics and Congressional Activity in the past month.
The White House and Congress continue to face a full legislative agenda including budget deadlines, tax reform, health care reform, and House and Senate intelligence committee hearings on Russian involvement in the 2016 election. April 29th marked the end of the first 100 days of the Trump Administration.
Other issues which Congress will need to address this year include the debt limit, which will likely need to be raised by September, an infrastructure bill, veterans’ legislation, defense policy legislation and reauthorizing the children’s health insurance program, the Federal Aviation Administration and the government flood insurance program. It is expected that there will be a need for all of these issues to gain some bipartisan support to advance.
