In the September edition of the Washington Tax Insight, True Partners Consulting take a look at Politics and Congressional Activity in the past month.
Congress returns on September 5th to face a full schedule with some pressing time deadlines. The statutory debt limit ceiling must be raised by the end of September and deadlines for FY 2018 appropriations legislation on September 30th must be met, as well as reauthorizations for the Federal Aviation Administration, flood insurance, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and user fees that fund the Food and Drug Administration. Congress will also have to reach agreement on a new budget resolution for FY 2018 in order to advance tax reform as part of the fast-track budget reconciliation process.
