Senate considers wildlife bill, NDAA gets markup, and police overhaul unveiled: Road ahead

The Senate begins consideration Monday of an unrelated House bill expected to be amended to provide permanent funding to the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The chamber is expected to spend much of the week’s legislative time on the the conservation bill, which could provide some vulnerable Republican senators something to tout on the campaign trail back home.
