U.S. Congressman Chip Roy visited our Rotary Club last Wednesday via zoom, and gave an overview of current affairs in Washington. He has been focusing on the fiscal year end and is working with the other members on a funding plan for the government through December. 
Recent highlights of legislative action and answers to some questions:
Congress passed successful funding of the PPP bill last June, and they are now working on expediting the forgiveness part of the loans to businesses.
The President will (and now has) nominated a Supreme Court judge Amy Coney Barrett.
Riots, protests: The federal government can step in to help quell riots if federal property is threatened. Private citizens can sue if states don't protect citizens life and property.
Fracking: He is concerned about the recent attempts to limit or ban fracking, because this could affect jobs in the oil and gas industry in Texas.
