House Floor Schedule

From the floor colloquy:
Madam Speaker, Members are advised that no votes are expected in the House next week.

Members are further advised that the House will be in session on Wednesday, May 27, and May 28.

As everyone knows, the Senate has amended the House-passed FISA bill, a very important piece of legislation that will require the House to act again. I expect that to be considered on the 27th.

I also expect conversations to continue on additional legislation addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The House could vote on COVID-19- related bills on May 27 and 28.
