The House will be in session Friday instead of embarking upon its August recess.
After the GOP leadership pulled a vote Thursday on a package providing $659 million to address the border crisis, House Republicans opted to stay in Washington until they pass a bill.
Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidDemocrats local party problem Trump flirts with Dems for Cabinet Lawmakers eye early exit from Washington MORE (D-Nev.) said Thursday night that the next roll call votes will be Monday, Sept. 8.
The House will convene at 10 a.m. after Republicans convene at 9 a.m. in the Capitol basement. So far, the only vote on tap is on a rule granting same-day authority through Sept. 5.
Allowing same-day authority means that leadership could send a bill to the House Rules Committee, and the House could then vote on it the same day. Normally, the House has to wait a day after a rule is approved.
