The House will remain in session through the weekend as Congress scrambles to secure a debt-limit deal in the face of a looming default deadline.
House lawmakers will continue consideration of a 2012 funding bill for the Interior Department while they wait for the Senate to act on a debt-limit bill, the office of Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) announced Thursday.
"No other legislative action on the debt limit — other than a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution — is expected in the House," Cantor's office said.
Votes are not expected before 1 p.m. on either Saturday or Sunday.
