The House meets at 9 a.m. and almost immediately will start considering three remaining substitute amendments to the GOP's fiscal 2012 budget resolution.
The House debated the resolution for four hours on Thursday night, and also debated a substitute amendment from Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.). Another substitute from Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) was withdrawn.
On Friday, the House will look at substitutes from Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) and House Budget Committee ranking member Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.).
Garrett's amendment will be of particular interest, as it has the chance to draw support from several dozen Republicans who want to cut more than the mainstream GOP bill from Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). All of the other Democratic amendments anticipate several trillion dollars more in government outlays over the next decade.
