The panel is also pushing its GOP issues retreat from Monday to Tuesday from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m., an aide told The Hill.

The hearing is expected to cover a wide range of economic issues from taxes and trade.

On Thursday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) office canceled Monday’s scheduled votes and pushed them back until 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The schedule change narrows an already short week. House lawmakers are only scheduled to be in session through Wednesday so Democrats can head out for their party retreat in Baltimore.
