  1. H.R. 2940 – To extend the program of block grants to States for temporary assistance for needy families and related programs through September 30, 2019 (Rep. Davis (IL) – Ways and Means)

This bill would extend the authorizations for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program (TANF) and the Child Care Entitlement to States (CCES), which currently expire June 30, through the end of the fiscal year. The bill would not make any policy changes, but would allow the Department of Health and Human Services to pay fourth quarter allotments to states, tribes, and territories on time and in full, preventing any interruption of benefits to low-income parents and children.

  1. H.R. 1261 – National Landslide Preparedness Act (Rep. DelBene – Natural Resources)

This bill would establish a national program to identify and reduce losses from landslide hazards and a national 3D Elevation Program, authorizes certain studying of ground subsidence, and authorizes restoration and mitigation of subsidence.

  1. H.R. 559 – Northern Mariana Islands Long-Term Legal Residents Relief Act, as amended (Rep. Sablan – Natural Resources)

This bill would reverse the termination of humanitarian parole for 1500 long-term Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) residents who would be forced to leave the Commonwealth by June 29th, 2019. It does not confer any U.S. immigration benefit – these individuals will not be able to live and work in any state or other U.S. territory. They will simply be able to lawfully remain in the CNMI as they were able to before U.S. immigration laws applied to the Commonwealth.
