The Week Ahead in Washington
Congress has left Washington for a two-week break, but lawmakers look to lay the groundwork for a busy spring agenda when they return. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he hopes to reach what so far have been elusive bipartisan breakthroughs on immigration, infrastructure, and budget caps.

House and Senate Democratic leaders will meet with Trump in the coming weeks.
