There’s plenty happening this afternoon on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers have grilling for four days a nominee for Army secretary, have the hearing process for Commerce secretary headed for a conclusion. And at a Senate Judiciary hearing in the afternoon, Sen. Dianne Feinstein will be asking questions about the Russian hacking attack on the Democratic National Committee and will be asking FBI and CIA officials about their election security report.

But there are other issues that have Congress interested — and Congress has plenty of time to address them. We’ve put together a timeline of what to watch out for.

-We’ll be watching the Senate Finance Committee and its hearing about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which has a lot of unknowns. Could new changes happen and would it apply to people who plan to start receiving their tax returns in just over a month?

-We’ll also be watching for any news about the energy issues that Jeff Sessions brought up in his Senate testimony — including whether President Trump supports nationalizing energy that has already been produced.
