House returns at noon to hear Kucinich speech, take up FAA bill

The House adjourned shortly before 11 a.m. on Thursday, and will reconvene at noon to hear an hour-long speech from Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) against U.S. military action in Libya.

After that, the House will begin debate on the rule for H.R. 658, the four-year Federal Aviation Administration authorization bill. In the afternoon, House members are expected to vote on that rule, as well as H.R. 872, which would lift a court-ordered requirement that certain pesticide users must obtain a Clean Water Act permit.
