Rules Committee to Hold 'Emergency' Meeting Monday on Health Care Repeal
The House Rules Committee will convene in an expedited meeting on Monday to consider a measure to repeal President Obama's signature health care reform law, according to a statement from the panel's spokesman.
Under committee rules, Monday's business is considered an "emergency" meeting because a
hard copy of the introduced measure must be available to members of the panel at least 24 hours before a meeting. While the text is available online now, the bill is not expected to be introduced until Monday, said committee spokesman Doug Andres.
Last week, Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's office said the vote to repeal the health care law would be set for July 11.
