Roll Call

Today at a Glance: April 24, 2013

The Senate will vote on a motion to proceed to a bill that would allow states to collect taxes on more online purchases by their residents. Proponents of the bill are hoping for passage by Friday, although Democratic leaders have already threatened a Saturday session if opponents make that necessary. Before the Internet tax vote, senators will take up the nominations of Jane Kelly to be a judge for the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court and Sylvia Mathews Burwell to be director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Meanwhile, the House is expected to pass a bill that would keep high-risk health pools created by the 2010 health care overhaul open through the end of the year by shifting about $4 billion from other programs authorized by the law.
