McCARTHY. I thank my friend for yielding.
Mr. Speaker, on Monday, the House will meet at noon for morning-hour and 2 p.m. for legislative business. Votes will be postponed until 6:30 p.m. On Tuesday, the House will meet at 10 a.m. for morning-hour and noon for legislative business. On Wednesday, the House will meet at 9 a.m. for legislative business. Last votes of the week are expected around noon. On Thursday and Friday, no votes are expected.
Mr. Speaker, the House will consider a number of suspensions next week, a complete list of which will be announced by close of business today.
In addition, the House will consider H.R. 186, the Regulatory Accountability Act, authored by Chairman Goodlatte. This bipartisan bill will modernize the regulatory process, ensure transparency, and reduce overly burdensome costs that are hurting job creators across the country.
The House will also consider H.R. 37, the Promoting Job Creation and Reducing Small Business Burdens Act, authored by the gentleman from Pennsylvania, Representative Fitzpatrick, which includes bipartisan reforms to reduce red tape and ensure that small businesses have access to the capital they need to grow.
Finally, the House is expected to consider legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security and respond to the President's unconstitutional executive action.
