This Week

The House and Senate will try to reconcile divergent approaches to the Ukraine-Russia crisis by effectively bolstering Ukraine and sufficiently condemning Russia. The Senate plans to begin voting Monday evening on legislation that packages aid to Ukraine with the approval of reforms by the International Monetary Fund sought by the Obama administration. But the House could vote by the end of the week on its own legislation that does not include the IMF provision, which House Republicans do not want tied to the Ukraine crisis. In addition, both houses will receive testimony from agency heads as the FY 2015 budget continues to take shape with an April 15 deadline beginning to loom. The House is also expected to pass another short-term patch ("doc-fix") to avoid cuts to the Sustainable Growth Rate; they must act before March 31 to avoid an automatic cut to the payments. more
