SCOTUS sides with Ted Cruz over federal law campaign loan repayment

Welcome to Monday, OnPolitics readers.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Sunday that Congress will take action on the baby formula shortage plaguing states throughout the country.

The House is considering two pieces of legislation: first, a bill introduced by Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., chair of the Education and Labor Committee, to “loosen some of the red tape,” connected to how people can purchase formula . Pelosi told CNN that half of the formula is bought by WIC recipients.

The second bill is being put together by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., that will allow the US to purchase formula from overseas. Mexico, Chile, Ireland and the Netherlands have a formula supply on hand that may be immediately available, Pelosi told ABC News Sunday.

“We must do something as quickly as possible,” Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
