Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick was appointed last week to the House Appropriations Committee. Steve Ruhlen served as chief of staff for two Appropriations Committee members, including Congresswoman Ann Granger, the current Republican ranking member. We asked Steve to begin a series of articles on the scope and responsibilities of this committee and his first article is in this edition. Steve Gordon rounds out this week by exploring the shutdown, the wall, the media, and China in Heard on the Hill.
Jim Miller is preparing a short series of articles on tax legislation that either must or may be dealt with in this Congress, and it will begin next week in Miller Time.
