House Floor Schedule

From the floor colloquy on the legislative program for the coming week:
We will consider several bills under suspension of the rules. The complete list of suspensions will be announced by the close of business today.

The House will consider H.R. 1230, the Protect Older Workers Against Discrimination Act. This bill ensures that victims of age discrimination in the workplace can enforce their rights so that older Americans are able to strengthen our economy by continuing to contribute their talents to the workforce, a proposition that I personally believe is very important.

In addition, the House will consider H.J.Res. 76, a Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval of the Department of Education's borrower defense to repayment rule that leaves student loan borrowers who were defrauded by their educational institutions with little or no recourse.

On Monday, the House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for morning hour and 2:00 p.m. for legislative business. Votes will be postponed until 6:30 p.m.
