Congress is now in recess until after Labor Day. If they are running for re-election, all members of the House of Representatives and one-third of the members of the Senate are now back in their states campaigning.
When they return to Washington, they have a tremendous amount of work to do, including passing funding for the federal government for FY 2023. However, even before they left for their recess the expectation among many people in Washington is that they will not be able to pass new funding by the start of the new fiscal year, which is October 1. That means, once again, they will be passing temporary funding measures to keep the government open until they can agree on full funding legislation for the entire fiscal year.
There are also cuts in Medicare looming if Congress does not take action before the end of this year. See more on that below.
