House won't be in session Thurs. for legislative business

According to House Republican leadership aides, House GOP leaders have not yet called their members back to Washington D.C., and WILL NOT be in session tomorrow for legislative business. According to one GOP aide, "It's up to Senate Democrats to act right now."

During the House Republican conference meeting late Thursday night, leadership told the conference that they would be given 48 hours before being called back to D.C. after Christmas. According to aides, leadership has not given that notice yet.

On Friday, the House passed a motion to adjourn until Dec. 27 at 2:00 pm, but because the Senate failed to also pass the motion, the House was required to hold a short "pro forma" session on Monday. It will likely hold another pro forma session Thursday, during which no legislation will be considered.

According to a GOP aide, "Scheduling decisions are still being discussed."

Meanwhile, President Obama is now scheduled to leave Hawaii -- where he and his family have been celebrating the Christmas holiday -- later tonight and will arrive in Washington tomorrow.
