  • The Congressional Budget Office last week released an annual update to the 10-year Budget and Economic Outlook. The report shows little change in the forecast of the Highway Trust Fund. Spending levels are expected to be about ~$1.9 billion lower each year as a result of lower  annual inflation anticipated for the 10-year forecast window.
  • Congress continues its August recess through September 6.  During this time, many U.S. Senators and Representatives are spending some or most of their time in their home states and districts.  Both the House and Senate are scheduled to be in session on September 9.

* Advocacy Interest Membership is a special individual membership category. To be eligible for membership in this category, a member must be a stockholder, owner, director, or employee of a member admitted to any other class of membership (Article IV, Section a-i, and l).
