This Week - House, Senate, UN

The Daily Nightly has its very handy regular weekly roundup of what to expect in the House, Senate, and at the United Nations. To summarize, there will be hearings, hearings, and more hearings.

House floor: Tuesday, Patriot Act. Wednesday, National food labeling. Thursday, the sex offender registry.

Senate floor: All week, lobbying reform, low income heating assistance, increasing the debt limit.

UN-IAEA in Vienna: 35 members to decide to refer or not to refer Iran to the Security Council for action. If they do, look for that to sway the headlines. Our boy John Bolton has no illusions of diplomacy.

UN-related - African Union: Do we (AU) transfer our 7,000-member force in Darfur to the U.N.? Sudan doesn't like the idea, but the U.N. and the U.S. do.

UN Security Council: Somalia, Kosovo, monthly lunchy with Kofi on Friday.
