Next week: Congress to focus on spending, reg reform instead of stalled gun bill

House lawmakers next week will focus on finalizing a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending deal that must pass by March 23, while the Senate will take up a bill to roll back Obama-era banking reforms.

But neither are expected to take up a gun control measure, despite urging from the public and President Trump, thanks to partisan disagreements over the scope of the legislation. The gridlock could be indefinite, although House Republicans plan to bring a bill to the floor in the coming weeks aimed at bolstering school security.

Without any clear path on guns, the Senate will vote on a bill that would undo many of the reforms made in the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that passed after the banking crisis a decade ago.
