The House will vote Thursday, not Wednesday, on the agreement to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year.
House Majority Leader Eric CantorEric CantorTrump allies warn: No compromise on immigration Chamber of Commerce overhauls lobbying operation Laura Ingraham under consideration for White House press secretary MORE's (R-Va.) office said the House vote on the agreement to cut nearly $40 billion from the rest of the 2011 budget would take place Thursday.
Cantor had initially scheduled a vote for Wednesday. But because the final legislation was not introduced until 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Republicans were forced to push back the vote or violate a new GOP rule requiring that all legislation be posted online for three days before a vote.
The vote will make for a busy second half of the week for House Republicans; they're expected to consider Rep.
