    The 116th Congress has come to order, and by many accounts, it may be the most diverse in history.  And lawmakers have their work cut out for them. The government is still shut down. The December 21 deadline for funding a portion of the government — including the State Department, the Justice Department, the Transportation Department, the Agriculture Department, and the Department of the Interior— has long come and gone, and lawmakers are still trying to figure out some kind of deal.
    It’s poised to be a busy week for small business in the House of Representatives. On Tuesday the House will meet and discuss small business participation in category management, the Incentivizing Fairness in Subcontracting Act and the Small Business Advocacy Improvements Act. On Wednesday the House will discuss the Encouraging Small Business Innovators Act as well as the Expanding Contract Opportunities for Small Businesses Act.
