Continuing Resolution –
H.R. 5303 - Water Resources Development Act: YES. On the plus side, out of a total of $10.5 billion for projects across the nation, this bill authorizes $1.6 billion for flood control projects in the Sacramento Delta. (Of course, this would have been unnecessary if the Auburn Dam had been completed, but at the moment that’s, um, water under the bridge).
S. 2040 Override of President’s Veto – JASTA (Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act): YES. If a foreign government pays terrorists on U.S. soil to attack the United States, victims can sue for damages. If that SAME government pays those SAME terrorists on foreign soil to attack the United States, those SAME victims CANNOT sue. This measure closes that loophole.
