House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) told The Hill earlier this month that these two bills would be part of the House GOP jobs agenda starting in September.

Cantor said another broad bill would rework the Administrative Procedures Act, which governs the way the Executive Branch issues new rules and regulations. He said these three bills should be on the floor in November and early December.

Cantor also outlined plans to take up bills that would repeal a 3 percent withholding tax on payments made to government contractors, and allow small companies to deduct 20 percent of their income. Aside from these plans, he offered a rough timeline for action on other narrow deregulation bills dealing with specific environmental, healthcare and business issues:
