This Week

The Senate is expected to vote on a bill to rein in the government's most controversial domestic-surveillance program. The legislation, sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, would effectively end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of Americans' phone metadata. The rest of this week includes House action on three messaging bills tied to the EPA, including one to address so-called "secret science" by blocking regulations unless data is made public. There's also a Senate vote on a House-revised version of a child care and development block-grant bill, and action is expected on executive and judicial nominations.

Lawmakers in both chambers will also continue to focus on ISIS, as they grapple over a potential new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), a law that was passed in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and is still in effect, and the Administration's request for an additional $5.6 billion in war funds. Congress also will hold a series of hearings this week on the Ebola outbreak that continues to ravage West Africa.
