Our cover article is written by John McKechnie, our financial services expert. We asked John to write about the agenda this Congress in the Senate’s Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee. His article – Financial Committees Figure to Struggle in Search of Common Ground – is an excellent read. Steve Gordon discusses News and Noise in Heard on the Hill. Dana Marston shares a calendar for this week’s legislative action, then takes a look at a variety of topics: the President’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget request released yesterday, the potential impact on ag exports on pending (and possible) trade agreements, insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act by state, and the looming debt limit.
