The Goodlatte Agenda: Nothing. Yesterday, CBC Chair Marcia Fudge challenged House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte to move the Voting Rights Act bill forward. Just as with immigration reform, Goodlatte appears to be set to do nothing on either issue — a familiar pattern in the GOP controlled House during the Obama presidency.
The House is set to be out of session in August, October and December. With time running out, Chairman Goodlatte is showing no signs of legislative action on big issues.
Fudge told reporters that she has talked to members of the GOP leadership in the House as a member of the Voting Rights Act task force.
