If Republicans take the Senate after the election this year, Sen. Wicker (R-MS) wants to see the annual military budget expand to over $1T dollars. That’s right: trillion with a T. He has an opinion piece in the NYT today saying why (gift link): https://www.nytimes.com/2024/05/29/opinion/us-military-war.html?unlocked_article_code=1.vk0.8Bfh.WvQDBHg3Epd5&smid=url-share

Have you noticed that we (and Congress) use a lot of jargon?

Let's get some of your questions about Congress answered. Ask us anything by filling out the form linked below. Ask about how Congress works, what we do at GovTrack, or anything else that you think we can help with. We'll try to answer your questions (without using AI!) in a future update posted at https://www.govtrack.us/posts.

Here's the form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdlb8Yxix2eQNTknOr8yaqht60Fsq2szXfTSHI8_1m9uiETxw/viewform?usp=sf_link

Hope you had a good holiday. Congress is still on theirs at least with respect to floor votes. Per Craig Caplan on X: “House (at 2pm) and Senate (at 10:30am) are both holding brief pro forma sessions today, but no votes will take place until after the Memorial Day holiday recess for both chambers on Monday.”

This doesn’t mean no Congressional work will be occurring. Staff are in and there are two hearings on Wednesday: https://www.congress.gov/committee-schedule/daily/2024/05/29
