LEADER'S FLOOR UPDATE
 
Schedule for the Week of December 6, 2021
as announced by Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer
 
Pending Senate passage of H.R. 6119, the Further Extending Government Act, tonight without amendment, the House will not be in session tomorrow.  If the Senate fails to act on the CR tonight, the House will meet at 9:00 a.m. for legislative business and is expected to vote on some of the postponed Suspensions.  Members are encouraged to keep their schedules flexible as we work to fully fund government.

Next week, on Monday, pending Senate action on the CR and that legislation being signed into law, the House is no longer expected to meet. This is a change from the previously announced schedule. 
 
On Tuesday, the House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for Morning Hour and 2:00 p.m. for legislative business, with votes expected no earlier than 6:30 p.m.
 
On Wednesday and Thursday, the House will meet at 10:00 a.m. for Morning Hour and 12:00 p.m. for legislative business.
 
On Friday, the House will meet at 9:00 a.m. for legislative business. 
 
The House will consider several bills under suspension of the Rules. The complete list of suspension bills will be announced by the close of business tomorrow. 
 
Additionally, the House will pass the National Defense Authorization Act, again, to provide our troops with the pay they deserve and our military with the tools it needs to carry out its missions safely and effectively. 
 
The House will also consider H.R. 8363, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to reassert Congress’s role as a coequal branch of government by addressing the vulnerabilities exploited by former President Trump and his enablers to weaken our democracy, undermine the rule of law, and subvert the system of checks and balances enshrined by the Framers in our Constitution. 
 
The House may also consider legislation to address the debt limit and prevent a manufactured economic catastrophe that would derail our recovery from the pandemic and cause needless suffering to millions of American families.
 
Moreover, the House will be ready to act on H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act, should the Senate amend it.
 
Lastly, additional legislative items are possible.”
