Read House GOP leader's Sept. agenda

Obama administration officials will head to Capitol Hill next week to brief lawmakers on the growing threat from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Thursday.

A number of outside experts also are expected to hold briefings with members about the group.

“These hearings and briefings will be absolutely critical in helping us take the appropriate steps necessary to achieve our objective: the defeat of our terrorist enemies,” McCarthy wrote in a memo to his conference outlining the GOP’s September agenda.
