It’s ON — the time of year when the House of Representatives uses its constitutional power of the purse to set its agenda. And next week, the U.S. defense and foreign policy agenda will be center stage.
There are hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, hundreds of amendments being considered, and just minutes of public discussion for each one.
This legislative process is a backroom lobbyist’s dream to push through huge arms sales and foreign government priorities — but equally just a small amount of public attention can have a HUGE impact.
We’ve been tracking hundreds of amendments — and these 5 are going to go down to the wire this week, and next week.
Can you email your representative right now and ask to support or oppose these 5 key issues?
