Mindset Weekly

Over the years, we’ve been known for translating Washington for Wall Street—and vice versa. And these days, we’re equipped to navigate complex challenges for nonprofits, startups, and investors, as well as domestic and international corporations across the economy. Our Mindset Weekly zeroes in on key insights and takeaways of note within the sectors we focus on each and every day.

March 14, 2022

The House is in session this week with a District Work Period next week. The Senate is in session through April 9. The House will vote on the FAIR Act to prohibit mandatory arbitration, a bill to ban natural hair discrimination, and several others under suspension. The House may also vote on legislation to revoke Russia’s preferential trade status, as well as possibly take up the $15.6 billion COVID supplemental bill, which was pulled from the FY22 omnibus. Notably, the House Financial Services Committee will vote on a number of Russia-related bills this Thursday that, as of now, includes restrictions on trading of Russian sovereign debt on secondary markets and delisting of Russian companies from U.S. exchanges. The Senate will vote on nominations, including that of Shalanda Young for OMB Director. FOMC meets Tuesday and Wednesday, with remarks from Fed Chair Powell Wednesday. We are also watching for the release of the President’s FY23 Budget Request, any legislative action following Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s virtual address to Congress this Wednesday, and changes to Sarah Bloom Raskin’s nomination status following Senator Manchin’s (D-WV) opposition.
