                  Mr. Netanyahu will cut short his visit at 1 PM today because of security developments in Israel; and

  3:00 PM:  Welcomes the 2018 Stanley Cup winning Washington Capitals.

Tuesday:      Hosts the Republican USMCA whip team, and dinner with Netanyahu. 

Wednesday: Lunch with VP Mike Pence and presents the Medal of Honor to the late Staff Sergeant Travis W. Atkins. 

Thursday:     Holds a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The Senate will return 3 PM and at 5:30 PM will hold a cloture vote on a judicial nomination. Later this week, the Senate will consider motions to proceed to S.J.Res.8, Green New Deal Goals, and H.R.268, the House-passed $12.1 b. supplemental appropriations bill.

The House will return at noon with votes postponed until 6:30 PM on five bills from the Suspension Calendar.  Tuesday afternoon the House is expected to fall short of the two-thirds necessary to override President Trump’s veto of the denial of national emergency resolution, H.J.Res.46.  It will also vote on two more bills from the Suspension Calendar.  Wednesday and Thursday until 3 PM, the House is expected to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, H.R.7, and H.Res.124, a resolution opposing the ban on openly transgender serving in the military.
