Looking Ahead - 2014 Federal Advocacy

from DBIA

As DBIA ramps up our federal advocacy efforts, we’re excited to look ahead to what’s in store for 2014. This year, since it is a Congressional election year, and Members of Congress want time to campaign, there will be a shortened congressional calendar. This means that there are only 29 working weeks to pass what are generally considered the “must pass” bills. These include, finishing Fiscal Year 2014 appropriations and passing all of Fiscal Year 2015 appropriations, raising the debt ceiling, finishing a water bill, renewing surface transportation funding and considering the usual defense authorization bill. Further, there are many other issues each party would like to deal with including immigration reform and tax reform. The bottom line is the likelihood of them passing everything they’d like to and need to is slim to none, but we’re working hard to ensure legislation we support become priorities. more
