Congressmen Weigh in on Iran Nuclear Deal, Debt-Ceiling Deadline
Congress this month takes its summer break, but when lawmakers return to Washington in September, they face a hefty must-do list that includes voting on the Iran nuclear deal, agreeing on a spending plan before an Oct. 1 fiscal cliff, another debt-ceiling deadline, a growing economic crisis in Puerto Rico, tackling human trafficking, and quite a bit more. All with sights set on next year's presidential and congressional elections.
Joining us with hopefully some bipartisanship are two members of the Illinois Congressional delegation: Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D) whose 4th Illinois district includes parts of Chicago, Melrose Park, Brookfield, and Cicero; and Rep. Randy Hultgren (R), whose 14th district covers a wide swath of Chicago's northern and western suburbs, from Antioch on the north to Yorkville on the south.
