Congress is back in session with several high-profile hearings and looming deadlines. The Senate will begin consideration of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court and will begin its work with the House on conferencing a number of appropriations bills. In order to avoid a government shutdown, Congress will need to finalize its appropriations bills prior to October 1st or pass a continuing resolution. Also on our radar is the commencement of oral arguments regarding the Texas v. USA case which challenges the constitutionality of the ACA’s individual mandate along with the guaranteed issue and community rating provisions. We cover this and more in this week’s preview which you can find by clicking here.
