5 things to know Monday

Congress returns to session, facing big decisions 

Congress members get back to work Monday, facing several major decisions that will test Democratic unity in the coming weeks as lawmakers vote on President Joe Biden’s domestic agenda, routine funding for the federal government and the size of the federal debt. Part of the reason for the collision of so many big-ticket spending bills is that lawmakers approved a two-year deal in 2019 for more spending and a suspension of the debt limit. Now the bills are coming due while pressure builds to pass Biden’s $3.5 trillion budget bill and a $1.2 trillion transportation plan to fund roads and bridges. A thorny policy debate governing election law also looms ahead. Here are some of the issues that will dominate the end of September and early October.

FBI searching for Brian Laundrie, fiancé of missing Gabby Petito

Police plan to resume their search on Monday for Brian Laundrie, the fiancé of Gabby Petito and sole person of interest in her missing persons case. The FBI announced Sunday that a body appearing to be Petito, 22, was found near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. While a forensic examination had not yet been done to verify it was her remains, the FBI said the body was “consistent with the description” of Petito. The FBI made the announcement as law enforcement in Florida ended a second day of searching for Laundrie, who himself vanished last week following her disappearance. The tragic twists and turns after Petito disappeared have fueled a massive law enforcement and social media effort to solve the complex, cross-country mystery.

‘Ted Lasso’ ‘Queen’s Gambit’ and ‘The Crown’ score top awards at the 2021 Emmys

TV’s biggest night lit up the silver screen as the Emmys returned Sunday. Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, this year’s showcase looked a lot more like the usual Hollywood glitz and glamour than it did during last year’s entirely virtual ceremony. There were still COVID-19 precautions, but the actors and actresses all gathered together in their red carpet attire, golden statuettes were given and the expected nominees won. “The Crown” led the winners’ pack, racking up seven awards, including the honor of best drama series. “Ted Lasso” notched four wins, including one for best comedy series, with Jason Sudeikis winning for lead actor in a comedy for his role in the series. The HBO Max dramedy “Hacks” swept up a trio of awards, while “Mare of Easttown” nabbed a similar trilogy of Emmys with wins for Kate Winslet, Julianne Nicholson and Evan Peters. See the complete list of winners here.
