The House will vote Wednesday on the resolution authorizing the GOP lawsuit against President Obama for his use of executive action.
It will also vote on a measure, H.R. 935, which would amend the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act regarding the use of pesticides near bodies of water. The bill failed to pass Monday evening under suspension of the rules, which requires a two-thirds majority. It is now being considered under a rule requiring only a simple majority to pass.
