It is time, once again, for “DC Update.” Rep. Jared Huffman — Humboldt’s Congressman — has returned to the airwaves of LoCO sister station KLGE-FM (“The Lounge”) to talk with DJ Larry Trask.
Much Congressional chicanery this week! Huffman and Trask talk about:
- The demise of the most recent Farm Bill, and how that’s tied to intra-Republican squabbling and Speaker Paul Ryan’s weakening grip on the caucus.
- Two new parliamentary maneuvers attempting to force House votes on DACA and net neutrality.
- An odd bipartisan coalition forming around prison reform (and against prison reform) which should be coming up for a vote this week.
- What’s happening, from his point of view, with the process around the future of the Eel River dams and the Potter Valley project.
Also: Huffman thinks Houston Rockets sux.
