House GOP Leaders: Weekend Session Possible

House Republican leaders late Wednesday night advised members that a weekend session is now possible, in the wake of the defeat earlier in the evening of their GOP version of a continuing resolution to keep government funding through Nov. 18.

Already, the House Rules Committee has approved a streamlined process for what is expected to be a reworked, follow-up version of the bill that could see it reach the floor for a vote as early as Thursday.

Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier, R-Calif., told his panel that he did not yet know what changes that new bill would reflect from the version that went down to defeat Wednesday – as 48 Republicans joined with most Democrats in opposing it. He also said he did not know when the new version would be ready, or acted upon.

 

But House passage is only half the picture. Reaching a deal on a final bill with the Senate could require extra days, even if the House does pass its bill. Some resolution needs to be reached to keep government running past the Sept. 30 end of the current fiscal year.

Both the House and Senate are scheduled to be in recess next week.
