House lawmakers now say fiscal crisis vote not likely until Monday
A House Democrat and a House Republican said Saturday they do not expect a vote until after the weekend on any proposal to avert the looming fiscal crisis.
Reps. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, and John Yarmuth, D-Ky., both told Fox News they expected the Senate to work on a proposal through Sunday and perhaps into Monday morning before voting, then pass the legislation to the House for a final vote.
“I’m looking for something on Monday,” Yarmuth said. “The Senate is going to have to act first. … They’ll need that time through Sunday and early Monday.”
Said Stivers: “I think we’ll see it Monday. I don’t think we’ll see it Sunday.”
