Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said he expects the tax cut compromise bill that just passed in the Senate to go to the Rules Committee today, but doesn't really think bringing to to the floor tonight is an option. Hoyer is still keeping quiet on what changes to the bill will get separate votes.
"They [Rules Committee] haven't decided what those options will be," Hoyer said, "but I think there will be options."
But he did say that the leadership is not whipping the bill.
Hoyer: "We expect them [the Senate] to give it to us between 2 and 3. And then we well go to the Rules Committee probably tonight and have the bill out tomorrow."
Reporter: Any chance of voting on the rule tonight and getting that out of the way?
Hoyer: "I don't think so."
Reporter: So when's the bill coming to the floor?
Hoyer: "No later than tomorrow."
Reporter: So you think tonight is still an option?
Hoyer: "No, I really don't."
Reporter: Do you think the bill will passed unchanged from the Senate version?
Hoyer: "We're not whipping it."
