House Committees to Receive Reconciliation ‘Fixes’

Language for a health reconciliation bill will go to the House Budget Committee Monday or Tuesday, according to a timeline presented by Speaker Pelosi to members this morning. Under House rules, the committee then would give 24 hours notice before taking up the reconciliation bill. After that, there would be a 48-hour wait before action by the House Rules Committee.

As it stands, the House Democratic caucus has reportedly not seen any legislative language from the leadership.
