House and Senate Cloakroom: December 19 – December 23
Posted By Josh Robbins On December 19, 2011 @ 2:08 pm In Ongoing Priorities | 2 Comments
Analysis: Over the weekend the Senate passed a two month extension of the payroll tax cut, unemployment insurance and SGR (the doc fix) along with a provision to expedite the decision making process for the Keystone XL pipeline. The House will return today to vote on this Senate compromise and a likely to vote it down over objections to the extension lasting for only two months. At this time Senator Reid (D-NV) does not have plans to bring the Senate back into session should the House vote down the Senate bill.
At this time there is not a clear path forward for how this is resolved before Christmas, if it is resolved at all.
