Getting ready for a full house long time no see. The House of Representatives returns this week to launch a three-week rant before the midterms in hopes of tackling legislation to fund government, and bills aimed at public safety, policing, government accountability and transparency.
The House of Representatives will move this week to pass a resolution on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and the chamber will be adjourned on Tuesday, after the legislative work is completed, in her honor.
Police work: Democrats wanted to move ahead before the August recess on a police and public safety package, which would allow frontline Democrats in tough re-election attempts to promote pro-police policing with additional funding for local law enforcement and crush Republican attacks about defunding the police. But the effort faltered as it led Progressives and other black Democrats in their party to urge the leadership not to spend more money for police programs without any kind of new accountability standards. We are watching to see if there is movement toward a deal on this. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told lawmakers that the chamber “is prepared to consider legislation supportive of law enforcement and address rising crime rates in this legislative term as work is completed,” which sounds like more hope than promise.
The House of Representatives is set to disappear entirely in October, giving lawmakers a full month to focus on campaigning.
McCarthy track The list of potential threats to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (C)’s bid for the hammer has narrowed, thanks to the GOP’s culling of core voters (and significant spending for favored McCarthy supporters). Mutnick and Olivia write that the New Hampshire primaries will be the final test for the leader of the Republican Party. With the primary season winding down on Tuesday, only a handful of Republican candidates in safe seats and battlegrounds said they would oppose McCarthy’s nomination for House Speaker, opening a clearer path for him to seize the gavel in the next Congress — even if a potential GOP majority is,” he wrote.

Here and now in the Senate– The Senate is battling several nominations for the Circuit Court while negotiations continue on a short-term government funding bill and same-sex marriage legislation and energy permitting proposals from Senator Joe Manchin (DW.Va) await in the wings.
good morning! Welcome to Huddle, your play-by-play guide to all things Capitol Hill, on Monday, September 12th, where you won’t believe who has a reality TV show. (More on that below).
The end of the game January 6 for the eyes – Time is running out for the January 6th selection committee to finish the investigation and dissolve it. The board has a long (and possibly pre-made) list to do this now and then.
More public hearings There is a comprehensive report that the commission promised to publish publicly. Both were originally scheduled to conclude by now, but the committee has continued to reveal more and more information that lawmakers decided was important enough to delay the schedule. The report may be accompanied by hundreds of transcripts of witness testimony that could reveal more details about former President Donald Trump’s behavior around the Capitol attack.
Among the commission’s list of tasks is to obtain testimony from two Secret Service witnesses who could have critical views. The committee also plans to issue legislative proposals aimed at avoiding future attempts to obstruct the transfer of power.

HOUSE GOP is a Trump-free investigation– House Republicans plan to pursue an entirely different kind of investigation into the January 6 attack on the Capitol if they seize control of the House, an investigation focused on blaming security failures and keeping former President Donald Trump out of the box, Jordan Reports. This is part of the conference’s consistent message that what the select committee revealed is irrelevant and that Washington needs to move forward.
Republicans also want to consider restructuring the secret Capitol Police Board that governs protection of the Capitol complex, a proposal that won support from both parties in the first weeks after the attack.
New faces: It should be noted that it is expected that there will be many new faces taking responsibility for the accountability of the Capitol Police. Representative Rodney Davis (R-Illinois), the top Republican member of the House Governance Committee, is leaving Congress after losing his primary but plans to hand his successor a detailed security restructuring plan at the Capitol on his way out. Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), the top Republican on the Senate Management and Rules Committee, is about to retire. Top legislature designers from both parties will leave next year, with Representative Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) hoping to be in the Senate and Representative Jimmy Herrera Buetler (R-Washington) also in a primary battle. This means new players are in charge of the USCP hunt.

Emitted torch fumigation – Representative Louis Johart (R-Texas) honored Dr. Simon Gould as an “American patriot and heroine,” awarding her a recently raised U.S. flag over the U.S. Capitol to the convicted Jan. 6 rioter after she was released from prison Friday.
“Dr. Gold is the definition of what a political prisoner looks like – something I never thought I’d see here in the USA,” He said in a statement.
Gould was sentenced again in June to 60 days in prison for her involvement in the January 6 attack on the Capitol. It is the Foundation of Frontline Physicians of America, a group that has stood out for spreading false claims about Covid-19 and pushing unproven treatments such as hydroxychloroquine.
