House floor update


Currently, the House is debating the rule for the repeal of health-care reform. We expect the vote to happen around this morning. This is a procedural vote and will pass. It will clear the way for debate to start on the health-care repeal bill on Tuesday. The debate will conclude on Wednesday, which is when we expect the final vote on repeal to happen.

Once the rule passes, the House will take up four minutes -- yes, four minutes -- of debate on a resolution to deal with the fact that Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) weren't sworn-in when they participated in legislative actions on Tuesday and Wednesday. That resolution is expected to disqualify any votes they took before they were sworn in.

*** UPDATE *** The rule for the health care repeal passed.
