The House meets briefly at noon for speeches and then at 2 p.m. to take up three suspension bills. One of these, H.Con.Res. 13, could prove controversial, as it would reaffirm that "In God We Trust" as the national motto of the U.S.
A two-thirds majority vote will be needed to pass this bill, which means it will need support from roughly 40 Democrats.
Two other bills up for suspension votes are H.R. 1002, which would prohibit new state and local taxes on wireless phone service companies, and S. 1280, the Kate Puzey Peace Corps Volunteer Protection Act. The latter bill would require the Peace Corps to establish programs aimed at preventing and dealing with sexual assault against volunteers.
