The House late Monday briefly debated legislation that would formalize that it's a crime to trespass on White House grounds or the grounds of the vice president's residence, and set up a vote on that bill, H.R. 347, for 6:30 p.m. Monday evening.
But in a change of schedule, the House did not debate H.R. 1433, which is aimed at reversing a Supreme Court decision that allows state and local governments to seize private property for economic development. There was no word from the floor or House leaders on whether debate on this bill would be rescheduled for Tuesday, but at this point, the House does not appear ready to vote on this bill.
A House aide said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), was not present to take up the bill, and that consideration would be rescheduled.
