This week in Congress March 05, 2012

Later this week, the House is expected to take up a new jobs bill, which is actually a combination of measures that already passed the House but stalled in the Senate.

Congress returns to work this week on some unfinished business, particularly in the Senate where Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to hold a procedural vote on a transportation bill that has jammed up the works since early February.

The lower chamber will do some housekeeping Monday, passing a number of measures to name Post Offices in Florida, New York and Alaska.

Later this week, the House is expected to take up a new jobs bill, which is actually a combination of measures that already passed the House but stalled in the Senate, called the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act.

In committee action, the House Homeland Security panel will examine VISA overstay issues on Tuesday, and the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday looks at deporting illegal aliens who are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Also this week, a Senate Energy and Natural Resources panel will hear about pending legislation to name new National Heritage areas.
