First Order of Business in Senate is Hunting Bill

November 9, 2012
The Senate returns to kick off the lame duck session at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin's office announced today. 

At the top of the agenda is Sen. Jon Tester's Sportsmen's Act of 2012, which is right where the Senate left off before going into recess. The bill was also at the top of the list of unfinished business made by Majority Leader Harry Reid's staff.

The act, among other things, addresses permits for bringing polar bear trophies hunted in Canada back to the U.S.

The House is also expected back Tuesday. Votes are postponed until 6:30 p.m. Members in both chambers will spend much of next week in party meetings. Newly elected members will be on hand to participate in new member orientation and participate in leadership elections.

Senate Democrats and Republicans will hold their leadership elections in separate caucus meetings at 9:30am Wednesday, aides said.

The Senate is scheduled to be in session through Nov. 21st, just before Thanksgiving. They return on the 26th and are scheduled to remain in session until Christmas Eve if necessary.
