The House adjourned before 7:00 p.m. Thursday evening, and released a schedule for Friday. The House will meet at 9:00 a.m., and take up a resolution providing for consideration of healthcare repeal legislation, H.R. 2. A vote on that bill in the House is now expected Wednesday.
The House Rules Committee, meanwhile, wrapped up its day-long hearing on the repeal bill at around 10:20 p.m. Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-Calif.) allowed dozens of Democrats to testify before the committee on the bill and the resolution. Late this evening, the committee approved a single rule for considering the bill and the resolution. That rule allows for seven hours of debate, which will be lead by the leaders of various committees.
