Florida's Sen. Scott has coronavirus, 'very mild symptoms'
Scott, 67, has been quarantining at home all week after coming into contact in Florida on Nov. 13 with someone who subsequently tested positive. Scott, a Republican, said he was “feeling good” despite the mild symptoms and would be working at his home in Naples. “I want to remind everyone to be careful and do the right things to protect yourselves and others,” Scott said in a statement. House members could be regularly tested in the Capitol starting this week, but there is still no testing protocol for senators. The absence Scott and Grassley on Tuesday helped Democrats block the nomination of Judy Shelton, Trump’s controversial pick for the Federal Reserve.

Watch Senate hearing on cannabis banking reform
The Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs is hosting a hearing on Tuesday titled "Challenges for Cannabis and Banking: Outside Perspectives."

The SAFE Banking Act now has 206 co-sponsors in the House and a companion bill in the Senate. The hearing comes just two weeks after the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security weighed reforming pot laws.cnbc.com
