“Appropriations: Wheeler, Brouillette To Headline Budget Hearings”

“EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette are on tap for the first trove of hearings this week following the White House's release of its fiscal 2021 budget plan.

Also on Capitol Hill will be Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

Neither the House nor the Senate is expected to vote on a budget resolution this spring; instead, it's anticipated they will adhere to spending levels negotiated last year.

The decision adds importance to the budget hearings, which will offer an early sense of the spending choices Congress will make as it writes its 12 annual appropriations bills.”
