After that, members will consider up to five amendments (details here). One of these would recommend that President Obama balance the budget by using the Simpson-Bowles deficit-reduction plan as a guide.

Members should be able to debate and vote on amendments and then pass the bill by about noon. The House has no work planned for the rest of the week; the Senate is out Wednesday, but returns Thursday to work on a bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act.
