House Republicans are expected to unveil their agenda on Tuesday, which GOP lawmakers hope will help offer a contrast to policy proposals by House Democrats ahead of Election Day. 

The one-page blueprint has three planks: “Restore Our Way of Life,” “Rebuild the Greatest Economy in History” and “Renew the American Dream,” according to a "Dear Colleague" letter sent by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin McCarthyTrump has 'zero desire' to be Speaker, spokesman says Hillicon Valley: Cyber agency says SolarWinds hack could have been deterred | Civil rights groups urge lawmakers to crack down on Amazon's 'dangerous' worker surveillance | Manchin-led committee puts forth sprawling energy infrastructure proposal Chuck Todd reluctant to 'ban' election deniers from 'Meet the Press' MORE (R-Calif.) to members of his conference on Friday. 

“From day one, our goal was to present a unified Commitment to America offered by Republicans across the country, while pointing out the very real contrasts we have with our colleagues on the left. Since late July, we received over 150 policy submissions from you and your teams,” the letter stated.


“Working with our committees, caucuses, and the Trump Administration, we have distilled those submissions into a one-page framework that encapsulates our mission and plan moving forward.”

The plan’s objectives include finding a path forward on COVID-19, restoring the economy and updating the nation’s infrastructure. 

Republicans need to pick up at least 17 seats to regain the House majority they lost in 2018. A key component to their strategy is showing a contrast from Democrats’ plans, GOP members have said.

“We've been working to really address the issues that our country is facing right now, renewing, restoring and rebuilding this great nation and confronting the problems that are in front of us,” House Minority Whip Steve ScaliseStephen (Steve) Joseph ScaliseOn The Money: Powell says pickup in job gains likely this fall | Schumer, Pelosi meeting with White House on infrastructure Powell says pickup in job gains likely this fall Hillicon Valley: Senate unanimously confirms Chris Inglis as first White House cyber czar | Scrutiny mounts on Microsoft's surveillance technology | Senators unveil bill to crack down on cyber criminals MORE (R-La.) told The Hill following a conference meeting where members were briefed on the plan. 

“It’s what this Congress should be working on. Unfortunately it's not, but it's what we're passionate about and what we're going to be battling for the next few weeks and months.”
