Aluwal has a spectacular aura about Aluwal has a spectacular aura about
Default Congress Currently Undertaking Passage of Pending Bills en Masse!!

Source: http://www.immigration-law.com/Canada.html

Both the House and the Senate are currently in the process of taking up and passing en masse the pending bills using the short-cut legislation tools of voice votes or unanimous consent, taking advantage of its continuing session to take care of the bail-out legislation on Friday. Unfortunately, the immigration bills which the employment-based immigrants are anxiously awaiting have not been taken up. Both the full House and the full Senate can take up any bills pending in the committees rescinding referral to the committees and pass the bills on the full House or Senate floor. Members of the immigrant community may bombard the members of the House and the Senate with the phone calls to try the "last chance" for these bills. For the floor proceedings of the House, http://clerk.house.gov/floorsummary/floor.html

I know the chances are very slim but it doesn't hurt in trying.

We don't know the time, when they will be back. But I heard on the news that, House is going to vote on Bail out bill by Friday morning. So they will be back either today or tomorrow morning for that vote.

Tomorrow they will have to spend full day dedicated to Bail out. I dont think dem will dare to bring HR 5882. It will be a partisan then and no repulican will vote for it. and simple rejection.

I think they are voting on bills that are not partisan and not hot issue. like for home less thing and etc...

I dont think they will pass any bill related to Immi , Finance, budget , medicare , Taxes.. They need full debate and then vote.

Thank you for contacting my office.

Congressional courtesy prevents me from replying to emails if I cannot determine that you are a constituent of mine.

If you are not a resident of California's 8th Congressional District and are contacting me in regard to my role as Speaker, please email me at AmericanVoices@mail.house.gov.

If you are a resident of the 8th District of California, please contact my office in Washington, DC at (202) 225-4965 to be added to our database.
