The GOP Leadership has announced the following schedule for Wednesday, December 12: The House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for legislative business.  The House is expected to begin consideration of the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 2 – Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (Rep. Conaway – Agriculture) (Subject to a Rule).  The House is also expected to consider bills listed for consideration under suspension of the Rules.
“… Republicans and the White House have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal if they are to avert a partial government shutdown, but talks are deadlocked over funding for the wall… With Republicans about to lose their majority in the House, the president and his GOP allies are determined to make one last attempt to get money for the wall Trump promised to build along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump claimed during the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall but now wants U.S. taxpayers to foot the bill instead… If no deal is reached, the consequences of a shutdown would be widespread. In addition to Homeland Security, other agencies affected include the Interior and Agriculture departments, the Justice Department, NASA, the Commerce Department, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Transportation Department, as well as many smaller ones. These agencies employ about 600,000 federal workers.”
