Senate Returns To Work For First Major Session Since March

Published

on

The United States Senate has finally returned to work on Monday in the first major session to be held since March due to the coronavirus outbreak that swept across the country. However, things are not quite business as usual. Returning lawmakers will have to endure through enhanced precautions to help continue avoiding the spread of COVID-19.

There have been a couple of limited sessions since the call to recess in March, but the crew involved were minimal. As of this writing, the House still remains out on recess, with leadership having announced they won’t be back in operation for the remainder of this week, though they have promised to have a committee hearing on the COVID-19 response.

Senate leaders are expected to deliver remarks on the floor late Monday afternoon, with an evening vote on the confirmation of Robert Feitel to serve on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Senators are expected to pop in, vote and leave to maintain social distancing.

While senators themselves will be present, much of their staff is expected to continue working remotely.

The Capitol Attending Physician issued guidance Friday recommending that their offices have as few people as necessary for the time being. Offices are encouraged to modify their layouts as well to provide additional space between workers.

Staff and visitors have been informed that they are to wear face masks unless they are six feet away from others. However, even with social distancing measures, they are still recommended to wear the masks.

There are several hearings on the Senate calendar for later in the week, which includes a Senate Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing for Director of National Intelligence nominee John Ratcliffe on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Senate will conduct hearings involving the COVID-19 response, including the impact the virus and measures taken to put a stop to its spread have had on the aviation industry.

Now, if only we could get more states to step up and begin putting plans in action to help regular people get back to work and start producing again so our economy can begin the long road to recovery, that would be fantastic.

Well, it looks like we can file this report under DUUUUUHHHHHH!!! From The Daily Wire: Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels slammed President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview this week for the ongoing crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that Biden’s reversal of the last administration’s policies have caused a serious problem on the border. “When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border,” Dannels said. “As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It’s [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it’s okay to come in this country. This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is it’s forcing us back to 2019, where we had the largest what I call crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6Hqonas7k And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/brandonwenerd/status/1368026400456732674 https://twitter.com/govkristinoem/status/1367944560580648967 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1368046181721444352 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1368037566684033027
