ABSTRACT
This article presents updates on the U.S. Congress for the week ended March 7, 2009. Facing an imminent funding cutoff for most of the federal government, the Senate slogged through debate on a $410 billion omnibus spending bill, that was already approved by the House. The House is moving to approve legislation allowing bankruptcy judges to restructure the terms of home mortgages. The House ran into unexpected problems that forced a delay of scheduled action this week on a bill to give the District of Columbia a voting member in that chamber.
