HOYER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1
Mr. HOYER. Mr. Speaker, I yield to the gentleman from California (Mr.
McCarthy), the majority leader, for the purpose of inquiring about the
schedule for the week to come.
Mr. McCARTHY. Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman 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 for the week are expected around noon. On Thursday and Friday, no votes are expected.
The House will consider a number of bipartisan suspensions next week to combat human trafficking. A complete list will be announced at close of business today.
In addition, the House will consider H.R. 351, authored by Representative Bill Johnson. This bipartisan bill will expedite liquefied natural gas exports to our allies. In order to boost our economy here at home and encourage global energy security, we must help clear the backlog of export applications currently pending at the Department of Energy, and I thank the gentleman from Ohio for sponsoring this important bill.
Finally, Mr. Speaker, the House will consider H.R. 399, the Secure Our Borders First Act, authored by Chairman McCaul, which requires the Department of Homeland Security to achieve operational control of our border. The bill also ensures that we are using the latest technologies to assist with border enforcement and takes the commonsense step of allowing greater access to the border region--specifically, Federal lands--to Customs and Border Patrol officers.
I thank the gentleman.
Mr. HOYER. I thank the gentleman for his information. The last bill he says will be on the floor, I presume that it will be on the floor on Wednesday. Is that accurate? I yield to the gentleman.
