Congress Facing Major Decisions, Deadlines

Posted: Updated:
Washington, DC -

Congress is back at work and they have a lot on their agenda
The House of Representatives is prepared to take the first step toward providing nearly eight billion dollars in emergency funding for Hurricane Harvey relief.
The bill will then head to the Senate where it is expected to be rolled into a measure that also raises the debt ceiling. Congress has until September 29th to raise the limit, or the U.S. will begin defaulting on its loans. 
President Trump invited Republican and Democratic leaders to the White House urging them to work together. He added to Congress' long to-do list after cancelling the DACA program, which protects immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
The President tweeted last night that Congress has six months to legalize DACA or he will revisit the issue. They also have to pass a spending bill by the end of the month, or there could be a partial government shut down.
