Congress returned from its summer recess Tuesday with a long list of unfinished business on tap for the fall. North Carolina Congressman David Price (NC-04) tells NC Policy Watch that lawmakers have just a handful of work-days to agree on a spending plan to avoid a shutdown of the federal government.
Congress will also be voting on an international nuclear deal with Iran, which Price supports.
Lawmakers in Washington must also decide whether to extend dozens of tax breaks for businesses and individuals that expired earlier in the year.
Rep. Price discussed Congress’ fall agenda including efforts to restore the Voting Rights Act on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon. Click below to hear an excerpt from their interview or here for a podcast of the full radio interview:
