Six Appropriations subcommittee chairmen whose bills the House did not pass earlier this year will host listening sessions Nov. 17 through Nov. 19 so members can ask questions or provide input on the measures, according to a schedule obtained by CQ Roll Call.  

The one-hour, members-only sessions are expected to give appropriators and leadership an idea of what members will be looking for in a year-end government funding measure.
