U.S. Senate leader cancels most of August recess

Senators to introduce bill reining in Trump's tariff authority Greg Nash

She said that she and other female legislators felt that Republicans were trying to intimidate Ms. Hochul. Doing so could court a veto and bruise their standing with Trump voters they need in midterm elections.

Tensions are running particularly high as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is threatening to cancel the traditional August recess as he fights Democratic opposition to GOP priorities in a show of busy-work before the midterm election. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican within the chamber, informed reporters.

Trump sparked backlash among congressional Republicans after the administration announced late last week that they were slapping steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, ending temporary exemptions for the key trading allies.

"Not everything we do has to be legislative".

Neil Bradley, executive vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, said the business community is "profoundly concerned" that the new tariffs will spark retaliatory measures in coming weeks that will cost American jobs.

He said lawmakers would "continue to make the case" with the president and his staff, which he noted is divided. But that campaign slogan is at odds with Republicans' longstanding preference for free markets and open trade.

The bills Schumer said he wants action on are ones most Republicans would not support, like one that would incentivize states to expand Medicaid.

Flake and Corker, who are both retiring, have been frequent critics of the White House.

"I'm all for cooperation, but if you look at the amount of work that we have to do, it's inconceivable to me that we can't use these weeks", said McConnell.

In a statement on May 24, Corker said that President Trump "abusing the authorities granted to him in Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962" was part of "a risky course and should be abandoned immediately".

Corker said Trump called him Tuesday to discuss the proposal, adding that he made no commitment to back off. He also said that the US steel and aluminum industries have "been ravaged" by foreign trade policies, adding that "this is only the first step".

The decision has ramifications for senators up for re-election this fall, a number that includes Cruz, who otherwise is expected to have spent much of August campaigning in Texas.

The Cuomo administration said the issues raised in the bill were already dealt with in the budget adopted in March.

He has long warned that a trade war will greatly hurt Tennessee's auto industry.

Joining Corker in introducing the plan was Democratic Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., joined a bipartisan group of his colleagues Wednesday to sponsor legislation that would require Congressional approval of tariffs raised in the name of national security.

"You would have to pass a law that he would want to sign into law and that, that would be what it would take", Ryan said.

Insurers from Washington state to NY have requested double-digit premiums increases on Obamacare plans for next year, citing static enrollment and Republicans' decision to scrap penalties tied to the individual mandate to hold insurance.

Corker's legislation would require the president to submit to Congress any proposal to adjust imports in the interest of national security.
