NDAA Watch – Last night, the Senate voted 91-8 to go to conference on the NDAA. Conferees for the FY19 defense authorization bill will formally meet today for the passing of the gavel. Each year, the chairmanship of the NDAA conference committee alternates between the two chambers. This year, the House Armed Services Committee will pass the gavel to the Senate Armed Services Committee.


Labor Policy Office Lead Announced – The White House announced yesterday that Bryan Jarrett, the acting head of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) federal wage and hour enforcement lead, will be the President’s nominee for DOL Assistant Secretary for Policy.


Financial Services Committee to Mark Up Small Business Bills – The House Financial Services Committee will hold a mark up today on 10 bills, including two small business bills: H.R. 6177, which would exempt an emerging growth company and its equity securities from registration for venture capital fund advisers, as well as revise the definitions of a qualifying portfolio company and qualifying investment, and H.R. 6021, which would ease a Dodd-Frank auditing requirement for small, privately-held brokers  that don’t hold customer funds.
