10:00 a.m. Morning Hour
12:00 p.m. Legislative Business
Fifteen “One Minutes” Per Side
First/Last Votes: 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

 

ANY ANTICIPATED MEMBER ABSENCES FOR VOTES TODAY SHOULD BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY TO THE OFFICE OF THE MAJORITY WHIP AT 6-3210.

Floor Schedule and Procedure:

H.Res. 739 – Rule Providing for Consideration of H.R. 2534 – Insider Trading Prohibition Act (Rep. Himes – Financial Services)

Suspension (1 bill):

  1. S. 151Pallone-Thune TRACED Act, as amended (Sen. Thune – Energy and Commerce)

    This bill will cut back on unlawful robocalls made to landlines and cellphones by requiring that carriers offer call-authentication technology to consumers and small businesses—in rural and urban America—at no additional line-item charge, so Americans can again trust that the number on their caller-ID is correct. The bill also requires that opt-in or opt-out robocall blocking be offered at no additional charge to consumers. The Pallone-Thune TRACED Act would further (1) help the FCC step up enforcement actions against unlawful robocalls, (2) help push DoJ to bring more criminal prosecutions against criminal robocallers, (3) require the FCC to work to stop one-ring scams, (4) help the FCC and responsible carriers traceback and cutoff the dodgy phone companies responsible for sending vast numbers of unlawful robocalls, and (5) protect patients and doctors from unlawful robocalls.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
