Here are all the things Congress didn't get done and probably won't
Congress is returning to Washington fresh off a seven-week recess with quite the to-do list. Here's a look at a few of the issues they need to tackle before their next break in October.
Funding For Zika
In February, President Obama sent Congress a $1.9 billion emergency funding request to fight the mosquito-borne illness.
House Republicans inserted several provisions into the Zika bill that Senate Democrats couldn't stomach. Among them, reduced funding for Planned Parenthood and defunding parts of the Affordable Care Act.
In the meantime, the White House has relied on funds from other programs, including leftover Ebola funding.
Congress has until September 30 deadline to pass a series of spending bills needed to keep the government up and running.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid warned his party would block any temporary federal spending bill that extends beyond December.
It's been nearly six months since President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley recently suggested he'd be open to holding a confirmation hearing for Garland during Congress' lame-duck session if Hillary Clinton wins. He later said he'd been misunderstood.
