Various members of Congress are already getting to work on possible replacements. But Congress will take a break today to vote on the Harvey Relief Bill. According to HuffPo, the package will request approximately $7.85 billion, which includes $7.4 billion earmarked for FEMA’s disaster relief fund.What’s Worth Watching
