2011 House Schedule Released

By jnurse

Leaders in the House have released a tentative schedule for calendar year 2011. However, the endgame for the current Congress and the FY11 appropriations process remains uncertain. Passage of appropriations bills for the current fiscal year now rest on the ability of the Senate leadership to garner the necessary 60 votes. It is expected that an outcome on FY11 appropriations will be clear by December 18th, by which time Congress will be required to act in order to continue government operations.
