All Points: Here comes the lame duck Congress

Congress is scheduled to reconvene on Nov. 12.

Major issues on the table include funding the federal government after current appropriations expire, possible unilateral action on immigration from President Obama, stalled judicial and ambassadorial nominations, an expected nomination for attorney general, extending tax breaks like the deduction for sales taxes in states including Texas, extending the ban on Internet access taxes and debating Internet sales taxes.

What do you believe are the most important issues requiring congressional action before the 113th adjourns in December? Or will this Congress maintain its “do-nothing” label?
