Congress returns to pre-election session

Congress is back for a pre-election session with one must-pass item: an extension of government funding beyond September 30, likely through a continuing resolution into December. The Senate is also expected to consider energy permitting reform, possibly in conjunction with the government funding bill, and an FDA User Fee bill. With the Inflation Reduction Act's tax-climate-health bill just enacted, any additional tax legislation is expected to wait until a post-election lame-duck session toward the end of the year, when a bill addressing tax cliffs and expired/expiring provisions could be taken up, possibly in combination with a retirement security package.

Additional information is available in the attached article from Washington Council Ernst & Young.
