House Democrats Tee Up Saturday and Sunday Votes
House Democratic leaders unveiled their budget reconciliation package Thursday afternoon and announced plans for Saturday and Sunday votes.
The Rules Committee posted the 153-page bill — which includes fixes to the Senate health care package and attaches student loan legislation — on its Web site, a move that starts the 72-hour clock toward a final vote that leaders expect to hold Sunday afternoon.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) announced that the House will meet at 9 a.m. Saturday and hold votes as early as 10 a.m. The House will also meet Sunday at 1 p.m. On Monday, Hoyer said votes are possible before 6:30 p.m.
