Yeah, there will be proposals. At least one Rep and one Senator have both promised to propose new laws in January.
They're not going anywhere. Legislators know that what will get you applause in Washington will get you fired at home. Whatever else those Congress-critters propose, they propose to get re-elected.
By all means, write your Senators and your Representative. It's your right, your privilege, and your way to remind those folks who they work for. But, with the current make-up of the House and Senate, I don't see this happening.
