Floor Schedule and Procedure:

1. S. 4160 – Supreme Court Police Parity Act of 2022 (Sen. Cornyn – Judiciary)

The bill would authorize Supreme Court Police to protect the families of justices if there is a threat to them (the justices are already protected under existing authorization).

H.R. 2773 – Recovering America’s Wildlife Act of 2022 (Rep. Dingell – Natural Resources)

This bipartisan bill will provide states, territories, and Tribes with additional federal funding to manage wildlife species of greatest conservation need.

 

This bill authorizes an additional $1.3 billion per year in mandatory funding to support the conservation, restoration, and protection of wildlife and their habitats and establishes a $97.5 million annual noncompetitive Tribal Wildlife Conservation and Restoration grant program to assist Tribes in carrying out wildlife conservation and habitat restoration activities. The bill will support the implementation of State Wildlife Action Plans and other wildlife management efforts, allowing for the protection of threatened and endangered species and leading to more effective and cost-efficient conservation. This bill will also promote the creation of more resilient ecosystems; boost the outdoor economy; and support the livelihoods of hunters, anglers, birders, and hikers.
