​​​​​​​​​​Election-year politics are likely to dominate legislative action in 2016 as both parties seek to lay out policy agendas for 2017 and beyond ,which would seem to dim prospects for legislation in 2016. However, Congress enacted several key pieces of legislation during 2015, despite divided government.
