A resolution in Alabama formally encouraged fist-bumping over handshakes. While legislatures tackled some elements of the coronavirus outbreak this year, most sessions had ended before the current wave of cases, deaths and renewed stay-at-home orders. Lawmakers of both major parties have vowed to make the pandemic response a centerpiece of their 2021 sessions, addressing issues ranging from school reopenings to governors' emergency powers. The virus also refocused attention on the nation's uneven and expensive heath care system. Tackling issues of coverage and costs were common themes in 2020. A Washington measure caps the monthly out-of-pocket cost of insulin at $100 until January 1, 2023, and requires the state Health Care Authority to monitor the price of insulin. A new Connecticut law requires pharmacists to dispense a 30-day emergency su...

1. This online resource provides a basic outline of the numerous steps of our federal law-making process from the source of an idea for a legislative proposal through its publication as a statute. The legislative process is a matter about which every person should be well informed in order to understand and appreciate the work of Congress. It is hoped that this guide will enable readers to gain a greater understanding of the federal legislative process and its role as one of the foundations of our representative system. One of the most practical safeguards of the American democratic way of life is this legislative process with its emphasis on the protection of the minority, allowing ample opportunity to all sides to be heard and make their views known. The fact that a proposal cannot become a law without consideration and approval by both Houses of Congress is an outstanding virtue of our bicameral legislative system. The open and full discussion provided under the Constitution often r...

1. The Supreme Court had been one of the major obstacles to wage-hour and child-labor laws. Among notable cases is the 1918 case of Hammer v. Dagenhart in which the Court by one vote held unconstitutional a Federal child-labor law. Similarly in Adkins v. Children's Hospital in 1923, the Court by a narrow margin voided the District of Columbia law that set minimum wages for women. During the 1930's, the Court's action on social legislation was even more devastating.3 New Deal promise.

1. First, HR 1425 would expand the availability of PTCs to eligible individuals whose income is above 400 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). Second, it would make PTCs more generous by reducing the level of income that an individual must contribute towards their health insurance premiums. Third, the bill would extend access to PTCs to those who are currently ineligible for subsidies because of the “family glitch.” Currently, PTCs are only available to individuals whose annual income is between 100 and 400 percent FPL (between about $12,760 and $51,040). PTCs are available on a sliding scale basis, meaning subsidies are more generous at lower income levels. By ending eligibility at 400 percent FPL, the ACA has created a “subsidy cliff” for individuals whose income is above this level. Lack of subsidies has resulted in affordability challenges for many middle-income consumers and led to coverage losses. Among this unsubsidized population, middle-class older adults living in rura...
