House and Senate return Tuesday

Tuesday could give House members a chance to vent over Republican spending plans, in particular plans to vote this week to defund Planned Parenthood and last year's healthcare law. But the serious work on spending bills will wait until later in the week.

The House returns Tuesday at noon for morning debate, and then at 2 p.m. takes up two non-controversial bills under a suspension of House rules.

The first is H.R. 1308, which would extend the duration of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act. The second is S. 307, which names a West Virginia courthouse.

The Senate returns at 10 a.m. to consider two district judgeships.
